Creighton, which dropped one spot to number 9 in yesterday’s AP poll, could be falling further next week after an 89-84 home loss to Marquette last night. 

Greg Elliott and Dawson Garcia combined for 23 of their 28 points in the second half as the Golden Eagles rallied from a 12-point deficit.  Mitch Ballock hit 8 three-pointers and scored a season-high 26 points for the Bluejays, who slipped to 4-2 overall while losing their Big East opener. 

CU will next play Thursday at St. John’s.
