Creighton Sweeps Weekly Awards, #23 in Coaches Poll

Two Creighton basketball players have swept the Big East Conference weekly awards.  Marcus Foster was named Big East Player of the Week, while Mitch Ballock was tabbed yesterday as the league’s freshman of the week.

Foster averaged 24 points a game and Ballock chipped in 13.5 points off the bench, helping the Bluejays to a pair of wins last week.

The Jays were ranked 23rd in yesterday’s USA Today Coaches poll, after earning the number-25 spot Monday in the Associated Press poll.

Creighton visits Big East rival Seton Hall on Thursday.  The Pirates are ranked 24th by the coaches and 23rd by the media.  The game tips off at 5:30 p.m. Central time and will be televised on FS1.
