    Creighton will blow after Dougie McDermott graduates.

    They're probably going to have to amputate Marcus Zegarowski's leg and Creighton is doomed to go 0-33 next season.

    Toppin is a great player, and the thing I like most about him: Dayton got better after Crybaby Archie Miller left.

    Waiting for Newbomb Turk to drop by with his usual Creighton hot take.

    I’m going to get bashed but Garza should of won. Dislike Iowa but Garza was the freaking soul of that team and he carried that squad.

    Seriously who starts at PG next year? Minz was a 3 year starter before he was injured this year but Zegi looked elite

    I like Garza, but how does this vault him over Toppin? He carried Dayton to a #3 ranking and they haven't lost a game since before Christmas.

    Now of course I don't think Dayton goes undefeated in the Big Ten. But despite the annual mantra about the BIG being the best conference in the country, the Flyers would have finished pretty high in the standings.

    You'll have to ask Dr. Sooner or Later, who diagnosed Zegarowski as having an ACL tear while sitting on his couch. He's like a human MRI machine.

    Hell no he isn’t going to transfer. He wants a Natty even if it means reduced minutes. Plenty of PT to go around though.

    Agreed, not to mention a probable 1-seed in the tourney.

    As a FWIW, I watch a lot of basketball and while it would not have been crazy to award Garza POY, Toppin is simply an overall better player. And he meant more to Dayton than Garza did to Iowa, at least based on the games I saw.

    No. Just that davion mintz redshirted this year coming off an injury. Still has a year to play, and started at PG for a few seasons prior.

    Dayton’s team didn’t have injures like Iowa did. Iowa lost one of the best shooters in the conference, a good young freshman in Patrick McCaffery, and that Jack Nunge guy who looked pretty good. Dayton didn’t lose any of their guys so that’s just what I’m thinking
