The Creighton women’s basketball team will grab at least a share of the BIG EAST regular season title with a pair of victories this weekend beginning with Friday’s visit to Xavier. At 14-2, the Bluejays are tied at the top of the standings with DePaul.
Creighton is ranked 25th in the latest USA Today/Coaches Poll. It is the first time the Jays have been nationally ranked since 1992.
“It is not going to mean anything when the ball gets tipped on Friday night at Xavier”, said Creighton coach Jim Flanery. “But it hopefully gives our players an indication of how much they have fought and how much we have improved this season.”
Creighton is 20-6 overall and will conclude the regular season on Sunday with a visit to Butler.
