Bluejays Drop Out of AP Poll; No Votes for Nebraska

Creighton dropped out of the AP men’s basketball Top 25 yesterday.

But, the Bluejays did receive 11 votes, which is 11 more than Nebraska got.  Purdue, which just got by the Huskers 65-62 in overtime last Saturday, climbed three spots to No. 1. 

On Monday’s Sports Nightly aired on KJSK, NU coach Fred Hoiberg said his team went “toe-to-toe” with Purdue.  “I’m just so proud of how our guys continue to fight and battle through adversity,” Hoiberg said.   

Next up for Nebraska is a game Saturday against Kansas State in Kansas City.  Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.  The pregame begins at 5 o’clock on News Talk 900 KJSK.
