Picked to finish ninth in the Big East in preseason polls, the 2015-16 Bluejays exceeded expectations to finish sixth while winning 20 games for the 16th time in 18 years. Creighton earned an NIT bid, where they defeated Alabama and Wagner to advance to the quarterfinals. They held an early 12-point lead at BYU, but the Cougars rallied to win and end the Jays’ season.

Point guard Maurice Watson earned Second Team All-Big East honors in his first season playing for Creighton. He led CU in scoring and led the league in assists. His 229 assists ranks second-most in CU history for a single-season. Cole     Huff, also in his first season after transferring, overcame knee and shoulder injuries to average 11.3 points per game. He had a strong stretch run, including a 35-point game vs. Seton Hall in the Big East Tournament. Seniors Geoff Groselle and James Milliken each closed their careers in strong fashion. Groselle averaged 11.2 points and a team-high 6.1 rebounds per game, while setting CU single-season and career marks for field goal percentage. Milliken averaged 9.7 points per game and drained 50 three-point baskets.
