Omaha, NE - Creighton moved up in both national polls released on Monday,
including a season-best No. 10 overall ranking in the USA Today Coaches Top
25 poll. It’s the program’s highest ranking in the Coaches poll since being
tabbed a best-ever ninth in the Jan. 20, 2003 edition.
In the Associated Press poll that Creighton more frequently uses, Creighton
is 12th in this week’s poll, up one spot. Creighton’s best AP ranking this
year was 11th on Nov. 26th. The program's highest AP ranking ever was 10th,
done Jan. 20, 2003.
Creighton has now been ranked in the top 17 by both groups in each of the
first 11 polls of the season, and 14 straight overall dating to late last
Creighton has now been ranked in the AP poll during 23 of Greg McDermott's
48 weeks at the helm, not to mention five other weeks where it's been 26th,
27th or 28th. The 23 weeks in the poll are most of any Creighton basketball
coach in history.
