Creighton Bluejays Weekly Roundup (03/24/2017)

News and Notes from around Creighton and the Big East this week:

  • The Oklahoma City Thunder produced a video segment with Doug McDermott and Kyle Singler breaking down the Sweet 16.

  • Following the death of former Chicago Bulls GM Jerry Krause, Doug Swenson talked to the Dickinson (N.D.) Press about the month he spent as a member of the Bulls in 1999. Krause had seen the Bluejay big man in action while scouting Rodney Buford, and signed Swenson to a contract with an invite to training camp.“You always wish you could be a fly on the wall, and I was a fly on the wall. True as it could be, I couldn’t hardly believe it,” Swenson said. “I got waived at the end of October, it would have been in the later 20s. But that’s one of my things — my transaction. I was signed and I was waived. They can’t take my transactions away from me. I was on the ticker going across the bottom and in the paper. As a kid growing up, I read all sorts of NBA books. I remember reading books like The Franchise about the Pistons, ’88-’90, those championship teams. To read about the background of that then to see the other side for myself, you don’t think as a junior high or high school kid you’re going to see the other side.”

  • His coach was pleased with this news:

  • Doug Gottlieb officially joined Fox Sports on Wednesday, where he’ll presumably be an analyst on their college basketball studio shows and game broadcasts next season.
