Creighton sits at the top of the BIG EAST standings and one of the reasons is the improved play of sophomore Martin Krampelj. The 6-6 native of Slovenia posted his third straight double-double in a Tuesday night win over Butler with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
“There is more room for growth in his game”, said Creighton coach Greg McDermott. “He is a student of the game and loves to study the game. He’s been incredible. Three straight double-doubles and the guys and the physical size he is going against is a credit to him and how much work he has put in.”
Krampelj is connecting on 67 percent of his field goals and is third on the team in scoring while leading the way in rebounding.
The 25th ranked Bluejays are 14-3 overall and next up visit 10th ranked Xavier on Saturday.
