Lincoln Southwest guard Lauren Works wanted to commit to Creighton on the spot last week when she visited.
But she knew that she had a few more places to check out, including Colgate.
She visited the school in Hamilton, N.Y., last weekend and then decided to cancel visits to the University of Nebraska at Omaha and San Diego. She had fallen in love with Creighton.
“The girls were amazing. I love the coaches. The academic part of the school is exactly what I wanted,'' she said. “It was perfect.''
Works, a senior with a 4.45 grade-point average, wants to go into medicine. She also visited Princeton and Yale and drew lots of interest from other schools in the area.
She said one good thing about Creighton is that it's close so her family can see her play.
“The whole school felt right. It felt comfortable,'' she said.
Works, who can play either guard spot, averaged 12 points a game for Southwest. She also has played for the Cornhusker Shooting Stars.
