The Creighton women’s basketball team hosts Northern State in the Bluejays lone exhibition game. The Bluejays were picked to finish fourth in the BIG EAST preseason poll and were also picked fourth prior to the 2015-16 season.
Senior Sydney Lamberty enters the 2017-18 season with 906 points, while junior Audrey Faber is just a few step behind at 873. The duo will likely become the 27th and 28th members of Creighton’s 1,000 Point Club early in the 2017-18 season.
Located in Aberdeen, South Dakota, the Wolves return four starters from last season and 11 letterwinners. The strength of Northern State is its post play as senior center Miranda Ristau and junior forward Jill Conrad scored a combined 978 points last season.
