As usual, the Creighton Bluejays will compete in college basketball. Although there are many reasons why the team could compete in the Big East in the 2013-14 season, they only need one reason to prove why they will have success in their first year.

The reason is their record against power conference teams last season.

Creighton beat Wisconsin, Arizona State, Nebraska, California and Cincinnati. The only power conference team that it lost to was against the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA tournament.

As you can see, the Bluejays are ready to play tough competition on a nightly basis when they tip off conference play in the upcoming season.

For the record, the MVC has had some great basketball teams over the years. I mean, Wichita State did make the Final Four in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Creighton beat the Shockers twice last season.

The Big East may not be considered as good as it has been, but it will still be a tough conference to play in. Not to mention, there will be plenty of teams that will compete for a conference title and there will be a few teams that will be good enough to compete for a national championship.

Creighton is one of those teams.

There are many reasons why the Bluejays will have success in the Big East. However, beating power conference teams last year should prove this without even having to go into detail, like how Doug McDermott will once again be one of the best players in college basketball.
