Creighton Moves Back Into National Basketball Rankings

After posting two wins last week, including one over Nebraska on Saturday, the Creighton men’s basketball team is back in the national rankings.

The Bluejays are number 25 in this week’s USA Today Coaches poll.  Meantime, CU’s 79 media votes in the Associated Press poll have the Jays sitting one spot outside the top 25.

Now 7-2, Creighton was previously in both rankings two weeks ago – at number 23 in the coaches poll and 25th in the AP poll.

Also yesterday, Bluejays guard Mitch Ballock earned Big East Freshman of the Week honors for the second time this season.  He averaged 9.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game for the week.
