OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Creighton returned to practice Wednesday with the same aspirations it had before Maurice Watson Jr. went out with a season-ending knee injury.
With Watson leading one of the nation's most prolific offenses, the seventh-ranked Bluejays (18-1, 5-1 Big East) were a trendy pick to make a deep postseason run, maybe all the way to the Final Four.
Since the senior point guard and national assists leader tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a win at Xavier on Monday, the conversation has changed. The pundits haven't totally written off the Bluejays, but there are doubts about how they'll navigate the rest of the Big East schedule without their national player of the year candidate.
