4. Creighton has sneakily won games

The Creighton Blue Jays remain in the Top 25 after wins over DePaul and St. John's, and while a victory over the Blue Demons is standard, the win over the Red Storm was an impressive victory. It came down to the wire and ended with a 66-65 point victory after a potential missed foul call, but it went down as a win for the Blue Jays who made some key plays down the stretch.

Creighton now sits at 13-4 and with this core of Ryan Kalkbrenner, Baylor Scheierman, Trey Alexander, and Steven Ashworth continuing to play well, this team can continue to make some noise as the schedule gets tougher. They travel to UConn and Seton Hall over their next two games, so their test for this season is just about right now.

Despite their losses in this last offseason, Greg McDermott has kept this team steady and the success of the past is still here. The Blue Jays are a team that can beat just about anybody in this conference, and with the Huskies still dealing with their issues health-wise, it is a prime opportunity to take down the No.1 team in the nation they have on their agenda.
