Creighton Men’s Basketball Picked to Win Big East Title

Creighton’s men’s basketball team has been picked to win the Big East conference.  The annual survey of league coaches was unveiled today as part of Big East Media Day at Madison Square Garden. 

It’s the first time since 2012 that Creighton has been chosen as a preseason favorite, though that recognition came in CU’s final season in the Missouri Valley Conference. 

Three Bluejays earned preseason recognition today.  Junior center Ryan Kalkbrenner was a preseason All-Big East First Team selection.  A pair of sophomores – guard Ryan Nembhard and forward Arthur Kaluma – earned second team accolades.
