1. Creighton rounds into form
Creighton is coming on strong just at the right time.
The No. 15 Bluejays beat UMKC 3-1 Tuesday afternoon in Kansas City to
extend their winning streak to five games and unbeaten streak to eight
Bluejay scores came from seniors playing in the final regular-season
week of their careers: Ryan Junge,
Michael Kraus and Jarod Tarver.
Creighton, which has clinched at least a share of the Missouri Valley
regular-season title, has reached the NCAA Tournament 14 straight years
and played in three final fours (1996, 2000 and 2002).
The Bluejays have gone 11-1-3 since losing to Indiana and Notre Dame on
the opening weekend of the season.
"It's good to see to see our team really coming into form at this point
season," said Creighton coach Bob
Warming. "We had some
beautiful goals and a lot of good chances. I thought we really
had some of our best attacking play of the year today."
