Creighton-Nebraska basketball: Bluejays put it out of reach

Creighton scored the first 10 points Saturday. And it didn’t get much better for Nebraska in the first half as the Bluejays stretched the lead to 37-7. Though the Huskers shot better after halftime, CU raced to a 95-76 win at the CHI Health Center. The Jays’ 95 points were their most ever against Nebraska, and they’ve now beaten their in-state rival 12 straight times at home and 17 of the past 21 regular-season games. The high-scoring affair wasn’t unexpected with these offenses as Matej Kavas (pictured, left) was one of five Husker scorers in double figures and Mitch Ballock (right) was one of four Jays to hit double digits.

That was the worst performance I have ever witnessed by a D1 basketball team. Bar none. Welcome my friends to rock bottom.
