Creighton men’s basketball junior Wayne Runnels has been named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week. Runnels scored 16 points, nine rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes off the bench at No. 21 Dayton in CU’s 90-80 loss.
His 16 points were by most in a Creighton debut since P’Allen Stinnett in 2007 and his nine rebounds were the most in a Creighton debut since Nick Porter in 2005. Creighton (0-1) has their home opener tomorrow night with a 7 pm home game against Florida A&M.
