For Greg Lansing, Creighton's departure from the Missouri Valley Conference is as much a personal loss as a professional one.
The Indiana State basketball coach grew up in Harlan, Iowa. He remembers the trips he made to Omaha with his father, legendary Iowa high school coach Dave Lansing, to watch Creighton play at the Civic Auditorium.
