Bluejays Today Omaha World-Herald

The Creighton men’s basketball team was ranked 26th in the latest USA Today coaches poll, released Monday.

The Bluejays (10-2) received 29 points in the poll. Creighton was last ranked, at No. 18, on Nov. 25. CU then suffered its only losses of the season — back-to-back setbacks in the Wooden Legacy Tournament — to drop out of the rankings.

One other Big East team, No. 14 Villanova, earned a mention in the poll.

Creighton was unranked — receiving five votes — in Monday’s Associated Press poll, while the Jays are 50th in the RPI rankings.
