As they have since December, Creighton officials declined to comment Thursday about the university's possible involvement with a new basketball league being formed by the seven Catholic schools departing the Big East.
Multiple media sources reported Thursday that the new league expects to begin play next season while retaining the Big East name, with Butler and Xavier joining the seven. ESPN.com reported that Creighton has emerged as the favorite to become the 10th team and would also join next season.
