Conventional wisdom says Creighton probably can't afford to rely on a 6-foot-7 post player with marginal athleticism as it ventures into a league where the big men are going to be bigger, stronger and more athletic than those the Bluejays are used to facing.
Then again, the benefits that Creighton might receive on the offensive end from pairing Ethan Wragge with a two-time first-team All-American might nicely offset what it would be giving up on the other end of the court.
