Creighton to join Midnight Madness party


Midnight Madness is just over two weeks away. And Creighton’s joining the fun.

The Greg McDermott era will kick off with the school’s first-ever Midnight Madness event. It’s not part of ESPN’s TV coverage (that’ll include UConn, Duke, Gonzaga, Kentucky, Memphis and Kansas State), but it’s a nice show of enthusiasm for a program that usually flies under the radar. Yes, there is life after Dana Altman!

Sounds like it’ll be a fun fan event, too. Creighton will have 3-point contests, a dunk contest, an autograph session and, of course, a scrimmage so fans can get a glimpse of the team in action.

Ah. You feel that? That’s the season drawing ever closer.
