Creighton closed out nonconference play with a 102-77 victory over Coppin State.
Seven Bluejays scored in double figures and Creighton shot a blistering 68 percent in the opening half to build a 56-36 advantage.
“Offensively we were really unselfish”, said Creighton coach Greg McDermott. “Our starting guards had 17 assists and one turnover between them. That’s good basketball”
Geoffrey Groselle and Isaiah Zierdan had 16 points each to lead the Bluejays. Zierdan connected on four of five from three point range.
“Having a game like this where everybody shares the ball it really gives you a rythym going into conference play”, said Zierdan. “What we need to do is make sure that it does not stop we need to cointinue to play Creighton basketball.”
The Bluejays are 9-4 and open the Big East race at St. Johns on Thursday.
