Creighton Survives Upset Bid By Bemidji State 94-46

Okay this game is over, let’s move on to Marquette.

NCAA Basketball: Bemidji State at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Thirteen minutes and thirty four seconds.

That’s how long Bemidji State had the lead in this game.

They came out as world beaters, with top scoring option Sharif Black pouring in 13 points on 4-7 shooting.

Creighton, meanwhile, jacked up three after three, having all but two rim out in the first half. Marcus Foster went 1-5 from beyond the arc. TOBY! went 1-3. Mitch Ballock went 0-2. Short, rushed possessions, with the sole intent of tossing up treys seemed to be the players’ prerogative as they lazily defended on the other end.

It was a mess, and Bemidji was capitalizing. They even led 26-16 at one point.

World beaters? An upset for the ages?

...

no.

Creighton led 45-34 at the half. As of this writing, with 10:36 left in the second half, Creighton leads 69-37.

The Beavs only scored three points in the second half in the first 11 minutes of play. Tyler Clement just hit his second three of the game.

This is becoming a bloodbath.

There’s 7:07 left. Jays lead 76-39.

I don’t know what else to write.

I mean, I could mention that Jacob Epperson went 3-3 from three, with one of those coming in the corner, the other two coming as a trailer.

He mentioned after the game that he’s still conditioning, still working to get consistent game by game.

Kaleb Joseph mentioned at the post game presser that, in order to find some success, that he needs to continue to put, “We before me.” He had 7 points in 16 minutes of action.
