Creighton embraced another benefit of its move to the Big East on Sunday when the Bluejays landed their highest seed for the NCAA basketball tournament.
CU figured its loss in Saturday’s conference tournament championship game would leave it with no better than a No. 4 seed, which still would have been two spots better than the previous best seed it received in 2006.
