UND men's basketball with big test tomorrow at Creighton

1 / 2
2 / 2

The UND men's basketball team will travel to Omaha, Nebraska to take on a tough Creighton team tomorrow.

This is a mtchup that has some history as well.

Not only does this all-time series date back to 1923, but Greg McDermott who used to be an assistant coach at UND between 1989 and 1994 is the head coach of the Bluejays.

Creighton is 3-0 at home this season and head coach Brian Jones knows that not only the team will be tough to beat, but their environment won't be easy either.
