Scheierman Sets Record, But Bluejays Fall in Overtime

Creighton’s Baylor Scheierman set a national record last night, but the Bluejays fell at Providence 91-87 in overtime. 

Scheierman became the first men’s player in NCAA Division I history to surpass 2,000 career points, 1,000 rebounds, 500 assists and 300 three-pointers.  He posted his ninth double-double of the season, finishing with 27 points and 11 rebounds.  But CU slipped to 16-7, 7-5 in the Big East. 

The Jays play at Xavier Saturday at 11:30 a.m. on FOX.
