Nickname: Bluejays Coach: Dana Altman Location: Omaha, Nebraska Record at Creighton: 260-140 Conference: Missouri Valley Career record: 343-207 Overall Record: 22-10 Conference Record and Finish: 14-5, 2nd Seed, Region and Bid: 10, South, Automatic Total NCAA Tournament Bids: 16 NCAA Tournament Record: 9-16 (.360) Final Four Appearances: 0 NCAA Tournament Championships: 0 Best NCAA Tournament Finish: REGIONAL SEMIFINALIST (1941) Final ESPN/USA Today ranking: 24 Final Associated Press ranking: NR Final Ratings Percentage Index: 20 Record vs. teams in the field: 2-2 Starters: F -- Dane Watts (6-8, 220, Jr. -- 10.1 ppg, 6.3 rpg) C -- Anthony Tolliver (6-9, 245, Sr. -- 13.4 ppg, 6.7 rpg) G -- Nate Funk (6-3, 195, Sr. -- 17.6 ppg, 3.0 apg) G -- Isacc Miles (6-2, 205, Fr. -- 6.0 ppg, 2.2 rpg) G -- Nick Porter (6-3, 210, Sr. -- 10.6 ppg, 5.5 rpg) Key Reserves: G -- Nick Bahe (6-3, 190, Jr. -- 3.1 ppg) G -- Josh Dotzler (6-1, 175, So. -- 2.2 ppg) (statistics before NCAA Tournament) OUTLOOK: Playing in what is well regarded as the best "mid-major" conference in the nation, the Bluejays rolled to their sixth Missouri Valley Conference tournament title in the past nine years behind the sizzling shooting of Funk, who averaged 22 points in the three wins on 53 percent (24-of-45) from the field. Missing all but six games in 2005-06 because of a shoulder injury, the senior guard bounced back in fine fashion, leading the MVC in scoring and the team with 3.3 assists. Tolliver provides the muscle inside, and also played a big role in the team's automatic bid, contributing 15 points and 13 rebounds in the 67-61 win over then-No. 11 Southern Illinois in the title game on Sunday. Unlike some of the other teams in the MVC, Creighton's non-conference season was not as impressive, listing wins over George Mason and Xavier. NEXT GAME: Friday vs. (7) Nevada at Columbus, Ohio
