Kalkbrenner’s Double-Double Leads CU over UConn

Ryan Kalkbrenner delivered 20 of his 22 points in the second half and Creighton held off No. 18 UConn 64-62 last night.  The Bluejays won for the seventh time in eight games and clinched a top-five seed and first-round bye in the Big East Tournament next week. 

Kalkbrenner’s team-high 22 points equaled his career best.  The 7-foot-1 center also grabbed 10 rebounds for his fifth career double-double.  The Jays are now 5-0 all-time against the Huskies. 

CU closes out the regular season at home on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. against Seton Hall.
