Creighton Madness

Fans flocked to the Bluejays early this season, when it seemed like every hoops expert in the land fell hard for the blue and white. A 10-1 start put a target on Creighton and created a situation ripe for a letdown. A big one never really came, though a three-game February losing streak sent the national experts looking for another “it” team. Through it all, good team chemistry and a pair of home wins in front of their charged-up fans helped the Jays get back on track. Get a deeper look at the cohesive group of student-athletes who have lifted the Jays to their first NCAA tournament since 2007. World-Herald photographer Alyssa Schukar shot a series of photos — including the one below — of the Bluejay men's basketball team and some of its biggest supporters at D.J. Sokol Arena on the campus of Creighton University. Hover over each CU player to see key information. Are you one of the fans in the photo?
