A near-capacity crowd of 2,160 turned out Friday night at Sokol Arena to help Creighton usher in the college basketball season with some Bluejay Madness.
The night included scrimmages by the men’s and women’s teams. Jordan Garrison led the Whites to a 16-12 win in the women’s scrimmage, while Gregory Echenique had 14 points as the Whites scored a 31-23 win in the men’s contest.
Sophomore Will Artino won the slam dunk contest, defeating last year’s champion, Austin Chatman, in a dunk-off. In the 3-point shooting contest, Isaiah Zierden and Sammy Jensen teamed to defeat Ally Jensen and Doug McDermott.
