PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Ty-Shon Alexander scored 18 points and Mitch Ballock added 17, including five of Creighton's 13 3-pointers, to help the Bluejays beat Providence 79-68 Monday in the Big East opener for both teams.
Martin Krampelj had 16 points and nine rebounds and Marcus Zegarowski scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half for Creighton (10-4). The Bluejays have won three in a row.

A matchup of two of college football’s winningest programs for four straight years and a return of Iowa as the opponent in the regular-season finale are among the highlights of Nebraska’s 2022-25 Big Ten football schedules. The conference office announced schedules for upcoming seasons on Wednesday afternoon.

Nebraska and Michigan will square off each season from 2022 to 2025, with the Wolverines visiting Memorial Stadium in 2023 and 2025, and Nebraska traveling to Ann Arbor in 2022 and 2024.

The future Big Ten schedules announced on Wednesday also feature Big Ten games as a season opener in both 2023 and 2025. In 2023, Nebraska will open the season at Minnesota on Sept. 2, while the 2025 campaign will kick off with an Aug. 30 game at Illinois.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Kansas City Community College, the fifth-ranked woman’s team in NJCCA Division 2, rolled to a 98-72 win over McCook Saturday.

The Lady Indians stayed with the Blue Devils early on and trailed by a point after the first period 21-20, but the Kansas City defense clamped down during the second quarter, to fuel a 28-10 advantage on the way to a 49-30 halftime lead.

“They really guarded us very well today and because of that defense we were out of sorts,” McCook Community College Coach Kellen Fernetti said. “We turned the ball over more than normal and it forced us into some tough plays.”

MCC turned the ball over 24 times.

The Lady Indians came back in the third period to compete on nearly-even terms, 27-26, but were not able to overcome the second-quarter defensive stand by the Blue Devils.

“They limited our threes and made us shoot tough twos,” Fernetti said.

The Lady Indians shot 43.1 percent from the field, but just four of 18 (22 percent) from the 3-point line and 64.3 percent from the line on 28 free throws. MCC had 42 rebounds and 15 assists.

Kansas City CC shot 46.3 percent from the field, 25.7 percent on 35 3-pointers, and 59.1 percent from the line. The Blue Devils had 44 rebounds and 17 assists.

Sophomore Hailey Tiles (Rogers, Ark.) led MCC in scoring with 15 points. Sophomore Sam Hinkle, (Rifle Colo.) had 12 points.

Freshmen Makenna Bodette (Colorado Springs) and Lena Goerke (Hamburg, Germany) both scored 10 points. Freshman Nikki Cross (Melbourne, Australia) led MCC with seven rebounds to go along with seven points and four assists.

“This will be a good learning experience moving forward as we prepare for a tough Region IX schedule next week,” Fernetti said. “We just have to keep our heads held high and still believe in what we are doing.

The Blue Devils improve to 16-2 on the season.

MCC closes out the “pre-conference” portion of the schedule at 11-5 with only Region IX or Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference games remaining on the schedule.

Region IX South Division play begins Friday as the Lady Indians hit the road for four straight Region IX games starting at Otero Junior College and Trinidad State on back-to-back nights, then at Western Nebraska Jan.22 and at Northeastern Junior College Jan. 25. MCC closes out the January schedule Jan. 29 against North Platte then plays six home games in February with the final home game Feb. 23 against Lamar Community College.

Nebraska defenders Dicaprio Bootle and Mohamed Barry led a group of Husker defensive and special teams standout honored by the Big Ten Conference on Tuesday.

A sophomore cornerback, Bootle was a third-team all-conference selection by both the Coaches and the Big Ten Media. Bootle registered 15 pass breakups on the season, tying for the second-most PBU in Nebraska history and the most since 2004. He ranked fourth in the Big Ten and 17th nationally in passes defended per game.

Barry had a standout junior season at linebacker and earned third-team recognition by the Big Ten Media and honorable-mention accolades from the coaches. Barry led Nebraska with 112 tackles, the most by a Husker since Lavonte David had 133 tackles in 2011. Barry had seven double-figure tackles games, becoming the fifth Husker to have seven games with 10 or more tackles in a season.

Three other Husker defensive players received honorable-mention all-conference recognition. Senior linebacker Luke Gifford was honored by both the media and coaches panel. Gifford had 62 tackles and led Nebraska with 13 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks. Gifford was also recognized on Tuesday as Nebraska’s winner of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.

Junior defensive linemen Carlos and Khalil Davis were chosen as honorable-mention players by the coaches and media, respectively. The twins from Blue Springs, Mo., anchored the Blackshirt defensive front. Carlos Davis had 27 tackles, three TFL and a sack, while his five breakups were the most by a Nebraska defensive lineman in nine seasons. Khalil Davis finished with 41 tackles, including eight tackles for loss and three sacks.

Junior punter Isaac Armstrong was an honorable-mention choice by both the media and coaches. Armstrong took over the punting duties at mid-season and averaged 43.6 yards per punt to rank second in the Big Ten. The average ranks as the ninth-best season average in Nebraska history.

The Big Ten will announce all-conference offensive teams on Wednesday.
