In women’s action:
Forced to spend the majority of Thursday in the hotel by the snow storm in New York, the Creighton women’s basketball team made the most of their opportunity.
- To keep in shape the Bluejays used the fitness center machines, ran the hotel stairs and held snowball fights.
- To maintain on-court strategy the Bluejays formed sides in heated UNO contests.
- To improve basketball team IQ and prepare for the battle with St. John’s, the squad watched film of the Red Storm and used a game of Kahoot to enhance their knowledge of one another.
With the snow storm having passed, the Bluejays will head to Carnesecca Gym tomorrow morning for a brief shoot-around, then battle the Red Storm at 6:00 pm.
