Foster Named Naismith Candidate; Creighton Opens Season

Creighton basketball player Marcus Foster was named yesterday as one of 50 candidates for the Citizen Naismith Trophy.

The Bluejays senior was a unanimous All-Big East player last year after leading CU with 18.2 points per game.

In the 50 years the Naismith Trophy has been presented, one Creighton player has won the award.  Doug McDermott earned the honor in 2014.

The Bluejays open the men’s basketball season tonight by hosting Yale.
