OMAHA, Neb. — Creighton's run is over, though the Bluejays believe they can pick up next season where they left off.
The Bluejays tied a school record with 29 victories and won their first NCAA tournament game in 10 years before losing 87-73 to North Carolina in Greensboro, N.C., on Sunday.
Point guard Antoine Young was the only scholarship senior on the team. Everyone else is expected to return, including Missouri Valley player of the year Doug McDermott. Guard Grant Gibbs said this season's team put "Creighton basketball back on the map."
The Bluejays knocked off three top-50 RPI teams, set a program record with 10 road wins and won the MVC tournament after finishing second to Wichita State in the regular season.
