Creighton men’s basketball announces busy non-conference schedule

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Creighton men’s basketball unveiled a challenging non-conference schedule on Thursday.

The Bluejays will play two championship favorites in Kansas and Alabama this winter. Creighton will host the Jayhawks on Dec. 4 and travel to Tuscaloosa on Dec. 14.

Before those high-profile games, Creighton will play three games at the Players Era Festival in Las Vegas the week of Thanksgiving, starting with a contest against Oregon and former head coach Dana Altman. The Bluejays eliminated the Ducks in the round of 32 of the NCAA Tournament last March in a double overtime thriller.

Creighton opens the season with a five-game homestand starting Wednesday, Nov. 6 against Rio Grande Valley.

The 20-game Big East schedule is expected to roll out in September.
