Alex O’Connell Is Set: It’s Creighton

Best of luck to him in Omaha.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL: FEB 10 Florida State at Duke

Alex O’Connell has decided on his next school and it’s Creighton. Unless he’s further along than most of us think, he’ll sit out next season.

He’ll be a good fit there. Creighton has a perimeter oriented offense and he’ll almost surely get more minutes. He still needs to iron out some bumps in his game - his defense and occasional mental lapses limited his time at Duke - but he has talent and potential.

Greg McDermott’s son Dou really showed how a guy could max out at Creighton and should be a good role model for O’Connell. We’re not saying he’s going to do that well, but it’s something to aspire to.

We hope he has a tremendous final year with the Blue Jays.
