Two losses last week cost Creighton its spot in the Associated Press Top 25 basketball poll, but the Bluejays hung onto a spot in the USA Today coaches rankings.
The coaches dropped Creighton from 13th to 23rd in the coaches' poll released Monday. The Bluejays had been 16th in the AP poll but were unranked Monday after losses to Indiana State and Illinois State.
Creighton did receive 56 points in the balloting by writers and broadcasters to stand 30th in the poll. The Bluejays had a program-record streak of 17 straight weeks in the AP poll snapped.
Poor shooting contributed to the losses, but it wasn't enough to cost Creighton its national leads in field-goal and 3-point percentage. Creighton is shooting 51.0 percent from the field and 43.2 percent from 3-point range.
The Bluejays dropped from first to third in 3-point baskets per game (9.4). They remain in the top 10 nationally in assists per game (fourth, 17.7), assist-to-turnover ratio (fifth, 1.48 to 1) and points (sixth, 1,945).
Forward Doug McDermott remained second nationally in scoring (23.3 points per game), and is 34th in field-goal percentage (.552), 42nd in free-throw percentage (.864) and tied for 92nd in double-doubles (sixth).
Grant Gibbs is 12th in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.8 to 1) and 28th in assists per game (5.7), while Austin Chatman is 82nd in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.07 to 1) and tied for 95th in assists (4.5).
Ethan Wragge and Gregory Echenique also are ranked in the top 100 in statistical categories. Wragge is tied for 85th in 3-point baskets per game (2.4), while Echenique is tied for 95th in blocked shots (1.68 per game).
