Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine dropped the rape charge after concerns arose about Watson’s accuser’s story and the events of Feb. 4. Watson instead pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault for an encounter with a different Creighton student at the same party.
The Jays (8-4, 1-0) overwhelmed Georgetown for a 25-12, 25-11, 20-25, 25-11 victory Friday night, finding their offensive rhythm from the start and never really losing their potency as injured starting setter Lydia Dimke watched from the bench.
Ian Steere has reportedly dropped his commitment to Creighton.
No matter the outcome of recent games or the future outlook, Big East opponents really want to beat the Jays.
