This is the 59th time Creighton has been rated in the AP poll since Mac arrived.
Prior to Mac, the Jays were rated in the AP poll 28 times in their entire history.
Mac at CU is 5 - 1 in overtime games including 4 - 0 in conference.
Creighton is very lucky to have coach Mac.

After losing so many key players off last year's team, it's amazing where the team is right now.
If Khyri leaves early, it would be the 2nd straight year losing so many key players.
It says a lot about how far the program has come.
CU doesn't rebuild, they reload like the powers do.

Not seeing any midseason mock drafts with Khyri in the 1st round. I see really early 2nd. If he tests the waters and gets that feedback, he may come back. He will be 22 going into next season though, so it might be better to turn pro and trust that the G League is better than it used to be. I firmly believe he can elevate himself to a mid first-rounder though and get drafted by a playoff team that can use him right away (kind of like OG Anounoby w/ the Raptors).

We will lose a lot of production, but if Tyshon and Mitch continue to progress and Martin and Ronnie continue to progress, we should be a tourney team next year. Let's just make it to the Final Four and then we'll get tons of recruits and won't have to rebuild. My one worry is the future frontcourt depth. Would really like a JUCO transfer or some other proven big besides just Epperson. Think the kid will be good, but he has a lot of development to go.
