The Creighton Blue Jays are one of college basketball’s best teams. They have played in 19 NCAA Tournaments, including nine in the 2000s. They have advanced to the Sweet Sixteen four times and the Elite Eight once.
They have also been to the NIT 10 times including four in the 2000s and also have gone to a CBI and a CIT in this decade. 2015 was the first time since 1997 that the Blue Jays failed to make the postseason so they will be motivated this season.
The Blue Jays have had several notable players such as Doug McDermott, Kyle Korver, Benoit Benjamin and Paul Silas. They currently compete in the Big East Conference, one of the most prestigious in the game.
The Century Link Center opened in 2003 and holds over 17,000 fans. It is one of the largest arenas in college basketball and one of the newest. The food selection at Century Link is awesome with such great items as hand carved sandwiches, gyros, Philly cheesesteak, grilled macaroni and cheese sandwich, plus the usual hot dogs and burgers.
The seats are excellent, with chairs all around and a great view of the court. The atmosphere is top notch. The fans are into the game and are some of the most knowledgeable in the sport.
The Blue Jays home schedule will include UTSA, Rutgers, Arizona State, Nebraska, IUPUI, Villanova, Georgetown, Providence, Butler and more. Don’t miss out on the excitement of Creighton basketball!
