He wasn't literally everywhere, but Tyson Belitz sure seemed to be. The Neligh-Oakdale junior scored 18 points, grabbed 16 rebounds, had six steals, passed out four assists, knocked down a three-quarters court shot to end the first quarter and helped spark a 12-0 run to start the second half during the Warriors' 53-35 win over Creighton here Friday.

One more drive. That was what Riley Tegtmeier was urging, exhorting, pleading for on the Bruning-Davenport/Shickley sideline Monday after Creighton had scored its fourth unanswered touchdown, shrinking the Eagles' lead to 32-28 with 4:58 left in the Eight Man-1 semifinals.
