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 games.
All three 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 in the 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."
