There's a good deal of unknown in Creighton's move to the Big East. So it's really good that there's plenty known about the Bluejays' lineup. Four starters return from last year's NCAA tournament team, including that two-time All-American.
Ethan Wragge, 6-7, senior, forward: Deadly outside shooter also has strength to help inside. Has made 224 3-point baskets and should finish career No. 2 on CU's all-time chart.
Grant Gibbs, 6-5, senior, guard: Fills up a box score with his passing, scoring and rebounding abilities, and has the poise and personality to keep team on right track on and off the court.
Jahenns Manigat, 6-1, senior, guard: Bluejays look to player nicknamed “Canadian Red Bull” for energy on both ends of the court. Has transformed himself into one of team's most dependable defenders.
Doug McDermott, 6-8, senior, forward: One of the best players ever to wear a Creighton uniform is looking to become school's first three-time All-American. Holds school scoring record with 2,216 points.
Will Artino, 6-11, junior, center: Left-hander set to assume bigger role in the middle. His passing skills and ability to run the floor will pose problems for opposing big men, but he must work to stay out of foul trouble.
Austin Chatman, 6-0, junior, guard: Team's quickest player made seamless transition from backup to starter at the point last season. Possesses uncanny passing skills but must continue to work on his shooting.
Avery Dingman, 6-6, junior, guard: Continues to grow as defender and driver after initially making his mark as a perimeter shooter. His size will be needed to handle bigger perimeter players in new league.
Devin Brooks, 6-2, junior, guard: Nation's 58th-best junior-college recruit after earning third-team All-America honors at Iowa Western. Playmaking and scoring skills could provide big boost to offense.
Zach Hanson, 6-9, freshman, center: Two-time South Dakota player of the year has chance to contribute immediately in the middle. Solid rebounder also possesses soft outside shooting touch.
James Milliken, 6-2, junior, guard: Strengthens perimeter scoring after shooting 42 percent from 3-point range as junior-college sophomore. North Carolina native averaged 30 points as high school senior.
Geoffrey Groselle, 7-0, sophomore, center: Is looking to expand role but has to overcome bothersome Achilles problem. Saw limited action in 17 games as a redshirt freshman.
Mogboluwaga Oginni, 6-8, sophomore, forward: Team's most athletic big man continues to refine raw talent after joining program as a walk-on. Provides team's other big men a challenge in practice.
Alex Olsen, 6-6, sophomore, guard: One of team's hardest workers will look to expand role after being valuable member of the scout team past two seasons.
Isaiah Zierden, 6-2, freshman, guard: Used redshirt season to build strength and learn system. One of team's best shooters could provide depth at either guard spot.
Toby Hegner, 6-9, freshman, forward: Set career scoring and rebounding records while earning all-state honors at Berlin, Wis. Depth at forward could lead to redshirt season this year.
Darian Harris, 6-6, freshman, guard: Scored 40 points in game and averaged 23.0 as high school senior. The need to add strength makes him a likely redshirt candidate as a freshman.
Steven Ferrarini, 6-1, sophomore, guard: Former Omaha Westside star joins program as walk-on after one season at Central (Neb.) Community College. Brother Ross played for Creighton from 2009 to '12.
John Burns, 6-3, freshman, guard: Joins program as walk-on after scoring more than 1,000 points for Bishop Garrigan High School in Algona, Iowa. Earned all-state honors in basketball and baseball.
Tyler Clement, 6-1, freshman, guard: Walk-on from Overland Park, Kan., will see action with scout squad in first season. Averaged 16 points a game as high school senior.
Eric Roberts, 6-3, freshman, guard: Born in Japan, comes to Creighton after playing final two high school seasons in Alaska. Walk-on will play with scout squad as freshman.
