Whoa! Santa Clara up on St. Louis by 14 with 2:30 to go, on the road.

Cougs about to start.

Big win for SCU; SL is supposed to be good.

S.Dakota loses to Southern (ouch) in their 1st game of the year.

Cougs seem to be cruising early.

USD in a tight one with N. Kentucky, early.

as most have been saying this off-season, SCU will be vastly improved, if not Top-4 in WCC...maybe higher...

They return their Top-10 scorers, the entire team, not to mention their best player/glue guy/versatile forward...

Foster, Roquemore, Trasolini, Cowels III, a couple raw, newer, yet athletic bigs have all returned and back on track this season...those 3 have been Zag "killers" at one time or another...

it was just two seasons ago they nearly took 2nd place in the WCC with essentially the same players they return from suspensions, injuries, red-shirts...lest we forget they had the Top-ranked recruiting class in the WCC in 2010?

why am I never that impressed with Creighton?

I know I should be based on all the pre-season hype, Top-15 ranking, top-ranked Mid-Major, etc, yet just like last season, I don't see a Top-15 squad from top-to-bottom. I just don't.

Yes, Doug McDermott(Coach's son) is a working man's All-American player and very impressive shooter, hustler, unbelievably soft touch, and really a fantastic rebounder for his position, yet seems to really overwork himself for points. Grant Gibbs is a very solid lead guard, court vision is special, and has strong handles, yet unable create for himself.

w/o a doubt they are a smart team, pretty efficient, and feature solid bball players all around. I respect and admire their team/programs, but I view them as overrated, much like last season.

They did not win their conference and fizzled in NCAA Tournament, which can happen to the best of 'em;), but I wasn't the least bit surprised after watching many of their games...

Honestly, I view Creighton as a poor-mans St Mary's. I think the Gaels are a good comparison overall, except I think SMC is better & would win by 10+.

Long story, medium, but I'd love the opportunity to face them and notch a Top-15/10 type win.

If Foster stays out of trouble, and healthy he is always a guy that scares me. He can go off in any game. Santa Clara beat a good team tonight that was right outside the top 25 and Foster lit em up: 30 points, 5 ast and 7 steals....

Santa Clara will play spoilers this year to some teams in the WCC, LMU also has the talent to do so, and San Diego is an up and comer that could challenge some teams...WCC is improving.

I'm with you. This is McDermott hype run amok. He certainly is one of the best players in the nation. He certainly can't carry the team on his back for an entire season.

For the second game in post season, I would love for GU to draw this team as opposed to other potential teams in that slot.

Foster has lit up GU in the past. I'm not sold on their coaching.

I'm sour on Gibbs since he was mocking the trick shot video on twitter, so I've gone from rooting for them to also thinking they are overrated ;)

Santa Clara has alot of talent on there roster but seem to lack consistency, Like you Mick Mick I am also not to fond of there coaching.

I remember when Foster went off on us...we have some players that will disrupt him...GB, and perhaps Hart can rattle him as well.

USD comes back @ home to beat a N. Kentucky team picked to finish 10th & last (Lindy's) in the Atlantic Sun. That would have been a brutal loss.

Anxious to see attendance. Awful.

Keating is a tool but very nice win for the WCC.

Still coaching Santa Clara after closing out last year with 18 STRAIGHT LOSSES ?

wow

But a good win tonight.

Still had time on his contract, couldn't afford to buy him out (though Traz injury & suspensions certainly bought him some time, IMO).

Keating is not a tool. He is, however, a utensil.

<Coach Keating actually gave a nice semi-humble interview in the WCC coaches/players "interview video" earlier this pre-season.>

Santa Clara over SLU...it IS still a good win, but it's not AS good as it maybe first appeared...SLU is/was talked about as possibly being a ranked team within these net few weeks, but they did not have Kwame Mitchell tonight. He broke his foot and is out 4-6 weeks (from what I hear, he JUST broke it within the last few days). He has been SLU's best player for a couple seasons...dude is athletic like a mug. Without him, a LOT changes for SLU.

Still, Santa Clara beat a pretty good A-10 on the road. I'll take it under any circumstances!

Alas, we'll never know, because Bennett wouldn't schedule such a tough nonconference opponent.

Woohoo thanks for the info as it does take a little sparkle off the win but it was a road win and that is always a plus...wonder if they got money too! It isn't the best scenario to pay a school to come in to "beat" you...that really hurts...like a six point turn around...
