The Creighton Bluejays are going dancing!

A year after missing the NCAA Tournament and going on a nice NIT run, the Bluejays drew a 6-seed and will play the 11-seed Rhode Island Rams on Friday in Sacramento, California.

This is Creighton’s tenth NCAA Tournament appearance since 2000, and their fourth appearance under head coach Greg McDermott.
