Due to possible conflicts with the delayed start of the outdoor hockey games at TD Ameritrade Park, the Creighton athletics department released a statement for attendees if Saturday’s Creighton-Illinois State men’s basketball game:
>> Parking Information For Feb. 9th: Overlap of Lot B parkers could be an issue tonight. CU Lot B pass holders may be directed to Lot A, D or G if Lot B is not available.
>> Arena Information For Feb. 9th: Doors to CenturyLink Center Omaha will open at 7:30 pm for Creighton’s 9:05 pm Creighton men’s basketball tip vs. Illinois State.
>> Shuttle Service Information: Chief Bus will provide complimentary shuttle service from the Creighton University campus to CenturyLink Center Omaha for all men’s basketball home games this season, including tonight. The service is available to all fans, not just Creighton students. The shuttle will start 75 minutes before tip-off and shuttles will continue to operate the route during the game. The three designated stops for pick-up around the CU campus are: 24th & California (nearside/southbound); 20th & Cass (nearside/eastbound) and at Billy Blue’s Alumni Grill (outside the Mike & Josie Harper Center in the turnaround which is on the east side of the building). The shuttle will then go eastbound on Capitol Avenue and then go north up 10th Street for drop-off at the CenturyLink Center Omaha convention center entrance. The route is designed for each shuttle driver to make a roundtrip every 15 minutes. Following the game’s conclusion, the shuttle will start at the CenturyLink Center Omaha convention center entrance on 10th Street and loop the original route with the first of three stops at 24th & California Streets.
