01.19.2010 / Adrenaline levels are high going into the weekend, The Voice of Billy Bluejay

After the last second shot by Antoine Young propelled the Jays to a 71-69 victory over Southern Illinois on Wednesday, the team, coaching staff, (and fans) exited the Qwest Center with a sense of excitement and energy. The bench provided much of the spark needed to lift the Jays to victory. It was a much needed win for the Jays and brings them to .500 (3-3) in the conference - tied for fourth place - and 8-9 overall this season.

"Fans are encouraged to wear WHITE to the game to help create a "White Out for Whichita!""

All knew that the celebration could not last for long, as the Jays quickly needed to re-focus for Wichita State on Saturday. Wichita State comes into Saturday’s game with a 16-2 record and is second in the Missouri Valley Conference with a 5-1 league mark. WSU won the first meeting against the Jays 70-58 in Wichita on Jan. 9, 2010. This Saturday’s game will give the Jays a chance to chip away at the lead in the MVC - so it is a battle you won't want to miss. The nationally televised game (ESPN2) will tip-off at 4:05 p.m. at the Qwest Center.
Reminder: Fans are encouraged to wear WHITE to the game to help create a "White Out for Wichita!" Cheer loud and GO JAYS!

What do you think of Wednesday nights win? Is this the spark that the Jays need to take them in the MVC Tournament? Don’t forget to register to win the Ultimate Creighton Basketball Experience.
