    nonconference opponents, perhaps better than he would like.After his Zips lost
    82-70 to the 10th-ranked Bluejays on Saturday night, Dambrot said this Creighton
    team appears to be a cut above the other three hes faced over the last 11 years
    -- even the Doug McDermott-led squad that beat his team by 16 points in
    2012.Theyve got a big-time point guard, a center who can run to the rim and
    three guys around them who all make shots, so it puts pressure on you
    defensively, Dambrot said.The point guard, Maurice Watson Jr., set a CenturyLink
    Center record with 13 assists to go with his 14 points. The center, 7-foot
    redshirt freshman Justin Patton, had 11 points, seven rebounds, two blocks and
    three steals. One of those shooters, Marcus Foster, scored a season-high 27
    points, including 13 of Creightons first 16 points.The Bluejays (8-0), off to
    their best start since the 2003-04 team opened 12-0, played their strongest
    first half in five games and never trailed.It was about staying focused in
    warmups, as we talked about last week, Foster said. We have to have a better
    mental approach to the game. I was really focused and locked in through warmups
    and it carried over to the first couple plays of the game.Kwan Cheatham Jr. had
    17 points and seven rebounds to lead the Zips (6-2), who lost for the first time
    in seven games. Isaiah Johnson, the Zips 6-foot-11, 300-pound All-MAC center,
    had 10 of his 13 points in the second half. He struggled when Creighton sped up
    the game in the first half. The Zips were able to slow things down over a few
    stretches of the second half, and he was able to go to work in the post.It was
    hard to handle him with just one body, hes so big and so skilled, said forward
    Cole Huff, who had 16 points.Akron pulled to 39-35 early in the second half.
    Foster picked up the crowd when he sneaked in the backdoor to dunk a lob from
    Watson. After Josh Williams 3-pointer for Akron, Foster weaved through the lane
    for another basket.Huff made back-to-back 3s, and Watson hit a 3 between dunks
    by Justin Patton and Foster before the Bluejays finished a 16-3 run putting them
    up 62-44.The Zips were without starting point guard Noah Robotham, who has an
    ankle sprain. Tavian Dunn-Martin picked up most of Robothams minutes and had
    seven points and three assists.BIG PICTUREAkron: The Zips wont see any tougher
    opponent -- until next week when they play No. 8 Gonzaga.Creighton: The Bluejays
    once again showed they are capable of getting offensive production from anywhere
    on the floor, with four players scoring in double figures.DONT FORGET MOWatson
    came into the game second nationally with 8.2 assists a game, something that has
    not gone unnoticed by his teammates.Hes the key to our success, and we go as far
    as he goes, Foster said. He could have 20 points a night, but he chooses to
    pass. I love playing with Maurice, a point guard who is going to find me and get
    other guys involved before he thinks of himself.Huff said, Ive never played with
    a point guard as unselfish as Maurice. He wants everyone else to feel good about
    himself and get their shots and get their rhythm.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Bluejays
    wont drop from No. 10 after sweeping MAC opponents Buffalo and Akron this past
    week, and they might even move up a rung.HE SAID ITThis is the fourth time Ive
    been in Omaha. One was for a Nike clinic and the other three have been a
    miserable experience. -- Dambrot, who dropped to 0-3 on the road against
    Creighton.UP NEXTAkron hosts Coppin State on Wednesday.Creighton visits Nebraska
