Men's Basketball Soars To 12th in Polls

OMAHA, Neb. -- A dominant win over No. 1 Connecticut helped the Creighton men's basketball team improve to 12th in the Associated Press and 12th USA Today Coaches polls released on Monday. It's a three-spot ascension in both polls. The Bluejays also improved two spots from last week to No. 11 in the updated version of the NET and up nine spots to No. 14 in the KPI.

It's the 16th time in 17 polls this season that Creighton has been included in both the AP and Coaches rankings. The NET ranking is the team's best position on a Monday since being ninth on December 18th, and the AP poll position of 12th is its best since being in the same spot on Dec.
