Good thing, since the guys got smoked 3-1 at Georgetown, leaving CU with a 3-4-2 BE record and 9-6-2 overall. Fewest conference wins since our first year in the MVC in 1991.

CU is the 6 seed and will travel to St. Johns this weekend. The two played to a 2-2 draw in their meeting this season in Omaha. The game was halted 9 minutes early due to lightning. Winner travels to GTown next week for the semifinal match. With an RPI of 47 prior to the loss to GTown Wednesday and a regional ranking at #6 (1 above St. Johns) - at least int the regional rankings I found - it seem unlikely that the loser of the CU v. St. Johns game will get an at large bid. Seems to me that CU may have to make the finals to have a reasonable shot at an at large bid. Couple of good wins early might tip the scales, however. Hard to say.

Big East is a 2-bid league barring upsets in the conference tournament. Creighton needs two wins to be considered for an at-large bid.

Men give up 2 goals in first 8 minutes and lose 3-1. No way they make the tournament. Only the 4th time since restarting the soccer program that Creighton has not made the tournament. Two of those four were the first two seasons. Only other was Warmings last year in 2009. Very disappointing season by Creighton standards.

Just a nice extra gut-punch on how disappointing this season ended up being. Player of the year, four on all conference teams, preseason top 20 ranking - to losing record, out in a poor showing in first round of conference tourney.

Simple. No back line. Partly due to the LaGro injury.

Creighton's season comes to an ignominious end in the Big East quarterfinal. This will be their first time out of the NCAA Tournament since 2009 and only their second time out since 1992. While this is not a normal result at Creighton and introspection is needed, I trust the staff to make the necessary changes that will make this season an anamoly.
