The Creighton men’s basketball team won its sixth straight game last night, but lost guard Ryan Nembhard for the rest of the season.
During the Bluejays’ 81-78 win at St. John’s Nembhard suffered an injury to his right wrist. He’s expected to undergo surgery in the coming days. The Jays point guard averaged 11.3 points and a team-leading 4.4 assists per game.
CU’s win upped its record to 19-8 overall, 11-5 in the Big East. The Bluejays will visit number-11 Providence on Saturday night.
