PHILADELPHIA — Creighton has tried not to let its focus stray from the task at hand, but that can be difficult now that the Bluejays know the challenge that awaits them just around the corner.
Following the conclusion of its NCAA tournament run, which begins Friday against Cincinnati, Creighton will have played its last game as a member of the Missouri Valley Conference. When the Bluejays get back to Omaha, their returning players will begin preparing for next season in the new Big East.
