Creighton Bluejays Weekly Roundup (04/07/2017)

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

  • The World-Herald ran a “Battle of Bluejays” bracket during March Madness, pitting former Bluejays against one another in a 64-person bracket and soliciting votes on social media to decide who would advance. The champ was a surprise: 11 seed Tim Powers, who averaged 17 points and 10 boards in his Bluejay career during the 1960s. He once scored 45 in a game, which remains the fourth-highest mark in school history. The story of his family and friends rallying support for him in this bracket was an unexpected, but quite touching, end to what was probably intended as a fun, simple exercise.
  • The CBI named their all-time team to celebrate 10 years of the event, and Doug McDermott was among them.

  • The news led some Creighton fans to wonder (jokingly) why Oregon’s invisible half court line wasn’t part of the group, since it played such a large role in Oregon’s 2011 title…

  • Georgetown finally settled on their new head coach: Patrick Ewing. While some questioned the hire, the NY Daily News praised it and in a back-page splash proclaimed “Ewing Back to Make the Hoyas Destroyas Once Again: THE BIG, BAD EAST.” That’s pretty entertaining as headlines go, but that line in the blue box at the bottom is just hilarious.
