Strong ties still remain between Creighton, Northern Iowa
Northern Iowa's Anthony James, No. 52, hits the game-winning 3 to beat Creighton 65-62 on Feb. 4, 2012, in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Both meetings last year between the Panthers and the Bluejays were decided by three points.

A meeting with Northern Iowa hasn't reached the point where it's just another game for the McDermott family. Probably never will.
But compared to the circus that surrounded Creighton's games against the Panthers two seasons ago, Tuesday's matchup at the CenturyLink Center has more of a business-as-usual feel.
