The Creighton men’s basketball team will take its first foreign trip since 2007 when coach Greg McDermott takes the Bluejays to the Bahamas starting Thursday (Aug. 11) for four exhibition games before returning home on Aug. 17.
Creighton’s trip starts with a game against the Bahamas All Stars on Aug. 12th (8 pm Central) before facing the Commonwealth Giants (3 pm) a day later. After taking Sunday off, the team will play the Mailboat Cybots on Aug. 15th (6 pm) before closing the trip on Aug. 16th with a 6 pm game vs. the Real Deal Shockers. All games will be played at Sir Kendal Isaac Gymnasium in Nassau.
Last year the University of Nebraska took a similar trip to the Bahamas in mid-August, facing three of the same teams Creighton will meet. The Huskers beat the Commonwealth Giants 91-74, Bahamas All Stars 89-67 and Mailboat Cybots 87-59. Earlier this spring, the Commonwealth Giants beat the Real Deal Shockers in a seven-game series to win its second straight New Providence Basketball Association title.
