Five games against NCAA Tournament teams from last season, including a visit to runner-up Gonzaga, highlight the Creighton men’s basketball non-conference schedule this season. It was announced today by head coach Greg McDermott.
The Bluejays open the season by hosting Yale on November 10th. CU visits Gonzaga on December 1st. It will be the Jays’ first game against a team coming off a national runner-up finish since a win over Indiana State in 1980. Creighton meets Nebraska for the 41st straight season when the clubs play on December 9th in Omaha.
The Bluejays’ Big East conference slate is likely to be released in early September.
