MEN’S BASKETBALL: Creighton Ranked In This Week’s AP Top 25

OMAHA, Neb. –(CU Athletics Jan. 13)– The Creighton men’s basketball team is ranked 25th in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 poll, joining the poll for the first time since the week of January 8, 2018.

This year marks the seventh time in Greg McDermott’s 10 seasons on The Hilltop that Creighton has cracked the top-25 at least once, after doing it just five different seasons in program history before his 2010 arrival.

Creighton has now been ranked in the AP poll in 89 weeks in program history, with 61 of those under the direction of eighth-year head coach Greg McDermott. Creighton is 113-43 all-time as a ranked team.

Each of the last four times Creighton has been ranked, the Bluejays have been exactly 25th. Creighton’s highest all-time ranking was No. 7 the week of Jan. 16, 2017.

The Bluejays are one of four BIG EAST teams that are nationally ranked by the AP this week, joining No. 5 Butler, No. 14 Villanova and No. 18 Seton Hall.

Creighton is also 27th in the NCAA’s official NET rating today and the top vote-getter in the USA Today Top 25 Coaches Poll.

Creighton returns to the court on Wednesday with a 6:05 p.m. Central game at Georgetown. The game will air on 1620 AM, as well as CBS Sports Network. The Bluejays will also host Providence on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
