The comment about mixing and matching things with the lineup is the key.

No doubt Marcus and Khyri get the minutes on the wing. But there needs to be a way to get Mitch and Ty-Shon on the court.

Interesting comments that Epperson likely will not redshirt and that Ronnie is a strong candidate to start at the stretch forward.

Lineup combinations will be interesting.

Thought it was pretty cool that the guys were recognized as being a part of Creighton randomly on the streets at the end of the interview. The Creighton name is spreading. Thanks Big East!

Garbage clickbait from the OWH, guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Coolest stat in article: Creighton will play against NCAA-qualifying teams from 2016-2017 in 17 of 31 games. I wasn't a math major, but I think that's more than HALF of CU's games up against NCAA teams. In the MVC, were we lucky to get six games in a year? This year, we get six Sweet 16 or better opponents. I love the Big East.

I also don't mind the schedule. Selection committee pays attention to late season performance, so I'd rather have an easier schedule late than early. Maybe we can catch some teams off guard, as scouting on the Jays won't be as complete as it will be late against those more talented teams.

This year, more than most, I have no idea what to expect of this team. I saw Bahe predicted 9-9 in-conference, with an overall record in the 19-12 range (give or take), which could get us in the tourney. That seems fair, but would I be surprised if we were 11-7 or 6-12? Not too surprised.


I love being battle-tested. Now, we've got to show up in all of them and certainly win most for it to truly pay off, but 10-7 or 9-8 in those 17 (or better) would be fantastic! Goes a long, long way in terms of recruiting, too...

So long as he gives us solid play at the 5, I'll be happy. Goes without saying that no one expects him to fill JP's shoes, but if he gives us a veteran, big-bodied presence on the floor with a good shooting range that forces the defense to follow him out a bit and willing to bang inside for boards... Yeah. I'd be sold.
