Junior point guard Marcus Zegarowski was listed as inactive for No. 7 Creighton’s Saturday home game against St. John’s.
He did not participate in the team’s pregame warmups, instead wearing a sweatsuit as he watched from the sidelines.
Zegarowski's absence from the lineup was due to a hamstring injury, according to CU coach Greg McDermott.
Sophomore Shereef Mitchell started in Zegarowski’s place Saturday. It’s the third career start for the former Omaha Burke standout. Mitchell finished with 10 points and three assists in the Jays' 97-79 win.
Zegarowski, the Big East preseason player of the year, entered Saturday’s matchup leading the team in scoring (14.1 points per game) and assists (4.8). He’s shooting 40.5% from 3-point range on the season.
