The Plays That Power The Creighton Offense, The Best In A Decade

Since the beginning of the KenPom era in 2002-03—college basketball's own little Copernican Revolution, during which the laws of the universe finally began to piece themselves together—there hasn't been an offense as efficient or as skilled as the 2014 Creighton Bluejays. But exactly how it operates is even more… » 3/21/14 12:15pm 3/21/14 12:15pm

Doug McDermott's Record-Setting First Half Against DePaul, In One GIF

Creighton's Devin Brooks Gets The Assist Of The Year

Creighton crushed DePaul in its opening round game of the Big East tournament. Doug McDermott slapped 35 points on the board, but the highlight of the game was definitely this horrible-pass-turned-serendipitous-assist from Devin Brooks. » 3/14/14 9:13am 3/14/14 9:13am

Doug McDermott Hits Game-Winner From 25 Feet Out

Doug McDermott, Creighton's do-it-all forward, dropped 39 points on 15-26 shooting against St. John's last night, and none were sweeter than his last three. » 1/29/14 3:05pm 1/29/14 3:05pm

How Creighton Created The Craziest, Deadliest Offense In The Country

The box score from last night's Creighton-Villanova game—a game that ended with Creighton upsetting the No. 4 team in the country behind 21 made three-pointers—looks like a fluke. No team is supposed to heave 35 three-pointers in 40 minutes, let alone connect on 60 percent of them, right? Wrong. The Creighton Bluejays… » 1/21/14 12:42pm 1/21/14 12:42pm

Creighton's Gregory Echenique Laid A Massive Blast On UNC's Tyler…

North Carolina got the best of Creighton today, earning a big 87-73 win that advanced the #1 seed to the Sweet Sixteen. They didn't get there without taking a few lumps, however, as Tyler Zeller learned at the forearm of Bluejay Gregory Echenique. » 3/18/12 7:46pm 3/18/12 7:46pm

Watch Creighton's Grant Gibbs Inbound The Ball Off An Alabama Guy's…

These are always great. Grant Gibbs goes off Nick Jacobs's lumbar for the easy layup, giving us the rare and wonderful highlight/lowlight combo. (Creighton won the game by a point.) Clark Kellogg calls it a "smart schoolyard play," which raises the question: What kind of schoolyard game features inbounds passes? [TBS] » 3/16/12 4:29pm 3/16/12 4:29pm

Creighton Is Going Dancing

Creighton's Doug McDermott Learned Being The Coach's Son Sometimes…

Creighton fell to Wichita State 89-68 last night—the 15th-ranked Bluejays' third loss in a row—and the slow meltdown of the perennial MVC powerhouse was made clearly evident in this incident late in the first half. Creighton star Doug McDermott's erratic play earned him a nasty tongue-lashing from head coach (and… » 2/12/12 12:24pm 2/12/12 12:24pm

Creighton-Northern Iowa Ended With A Bang-Bang Buzzer-Beater

Top 15-ranked Creighton fell to Northern Iowa in painful fashion today, after a tying three-pointer was overruled by a buzzer-beating three at the other end. » 2/04/12 7:46pm 2/04/12 7:46pm

Invisible Line Helps Oregon Win A Sub-NIT Championship

I Can Go With Both Hands, Myself

I'm sorry, Nate Funk, but you are no longer my favorite Creighton athlete. That honor now belongs to Pat Venditte, a pitcher on the Creighton baseball team that can pitch with either hand. From the New York Times: » 4/07/07 6:00pm 4/07/07 6:00pm

Creighton Blue Jays

1. The original Huggy Bear. Before Bob Huggins (and Tom Asbury and Jim Wooldridge), there was Dana Altman. In four years at K-State, Altman led the Wildcats to three postseason tournaments (including the Big Dance in 1993) and won a Big Eight Coach of the Year award. Since taking over at Creighton in 1994, he has… » 3/11/07 12:00am 3/11/07 12:00am

Creighton Bluejays

1. Trust The Frosh With The Rock. Creighton was 17-5 for the season before losing true freshman point guard Josh Dotzler to a knee injury, and went 2-4 without Dotzler, who will be back for the NCAA tournament. Dotzler isn't the first true freshman to start at the point for Creighton: Dotzler succeeded Tyler McKinney,… » 3/11/06 12:00am 3/11/06 12:00am
