Creighton has their eyes on “bigger and better” as they look to build off last year’s 25-10 campaign that saw them ranked as high as #9 in the nation, finish second at the Big East Tournament in New York City and qualify for the NCAA Tournament.
The Bluejays will be led by returning starters Marcus Foster and Khyri Thomas in addition to nine other returning letterwinners from last season. New faces will give Creighton some added firepower thanks to Coach Greg McDermott hauling in the nation’s 21st ranked recruiting class in 2017.
This year’s schedule look to be one of the nation’s most challenging on paper as the Bluejays look to continue building themselves up as a major brand in college basketball. Creighton will travel to Gonzaga and face the 2017 national runner-up, two games against an Xavier squad that reached the Elite Eight last year, four matchups against Sweet 16 qualifiers (Butler, Wisconsin, UCLA and Baylor), and nine games against NCAA tournament qualifiers from last season.
The Bluejays were selected to participate in the 2017 Hall of Fame Classic at Sprint Center in Kansas City on November 20th and 21st. They will play UCLA at 6pm on Monday, Nov. 20th and will take on either Baylor or Wisconsin the following night (Tuesday, Nov. 21st) in what will be two great opportunities for them to make an early season statement to the nation.
A few marquee non-conference home games are sure to be highly entertaining contests for Bluejays – the Yale Bulldogs (who won a NCAA tournament game in 2016) will be the opponent on November 10th in the season opener at CenturyLink Center, an always entertaining matchup against in-state rival Nebraska happens on December 9th, and one of the nation’s premier mid-major programs UT Arlington comes to Omaha on December 18th.
Big East play gets underway on New Year’s Eve as the Bluejays will host Providence. In total, Creighton will have eight home conference games with St. John’s (January 3rd), Butler (Jan. 9th), Seton Hall (Jan. 17th), Georgetown (Jan. 27th), Xavier (February 10th), Marquette (Feb. 17th), Villanova (Feb. 24th), and DePaul (Feb. 27th) set to visit Omaha this season.
