Big East basketball got a big boost when Villanova won the National Championship last season, and No. Cheap NBA Jerseys . 22 Creighton is hoping to join that wave by taking a step forward in 2016-17.The Bluejays, who host UMKC in the season opener on Friday, reached the quarterfinals of the NIT last spring and are trying to reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2014 behind transfer Marcus Foster and leading returning scorer Maurice Watson, Jr. Foster is joined by four freshmen expected to make an immediate impact.Foster averaged 14.1 points in two seasons at Kansas State before sitting out last season due to the transfer. He needed only 16 minutes in Creightons lone exhibition game to score a team-high 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting.Basketballs been my life since I was very young -- so for me and my family right now, this is just a lot of excitement and anxiousness, Foster told the Omaha World-Herald.Bluejays coach Greg McDermott is a veteran when it comes to integrating transfers into his system. Watson Jr. (Boston University) and second-leading scorer Cole Huff (Nevada) were both new to the program last season after transferring in and led Creighton to a 20-15 record.When I got here, everybody, they opened up to me immediately; and you dont see that at most places, Foster told the Omaha World-Herald. This team, everybody likes each other, wants to hang around each other. You dont see that everywhere. Its good to have that on your team.It used to be that you either transferred because you didnt have a choice -- you got kicked off the team -- or you figured out you werent good enough to play there, McDermott said. And now, good players transfer.The Kangaroos rely on transfers as well and count at least eight on the roster including junior college transfers. Star senior Martez Harrison is an exception as a four-year starter and is trying to get back to the level he showed during his sophomore season.The Kansas City native was an honorable mention All-American and WAC Player of the Year after leading the league in scoring (17.5 points), steals (60) and assists (129) as a sophomore. The added defensive focus last season caused Harrison to slip to 15.4 points on 38.7 percent shooting and a spot on the second-team All-WAC.Harrison was named first-team All-WAC in preseason polling while fellow senior LaVell Boyd, who is in his second season with the Kangaroos after transferring from junior college, was named to the second team.Theres always that new excitement every year for each fan base and hopefully we can keep them excited, UMKC coach Kareem Richardson told reporters.The Kangaroos finished sixth in the WAC last season at 12-19 (4-10) and are due for only a modest improvement according to preseason polling that slated them fifth in 2016-17. UMKC will also visit No. 3 Kansas and No. 20 West Virginia in the non-conference slate.The Bluejays were slotted third in the Big East preseason poll behind defending champion Villanova and Xavier. Creighton will need to work not to overlook the Kangaroos with No. 9 Wisconsin scheduled to visit on Tuesday before heading off to St. Thomas for the Paradise Jam starting Nov. 18. Cheap 76ers Jerseys .

Im looking forward to spending time with him at the Ryder Cup. I think thatll be great motivation for him.Im hoping we can get paired together. That would be really fun. I would love it. Its great to have him back and hopefully hes physically able to practice the way he needs.Woods, who has held the No. 1 ranking in the world longer than anyone else, has slipped to 711th due to inactivity after undergoing two back procedures in the fall of 2015. He tied for 10th at the Wyndham Championship in August 2015, then had back surgery in mid-September and another procedure in late October.If Woods plays Oct. 13, it will end a stretch of 416 days between official tournament rounds for him.My rehabilitation is to the point where Im comfortable making plans, but I still have work to do, Woods said in a statement. Whether I can play depends on my continued progress and recovery. My hope is to have my game ready to go.Im looking forward to going to California for my foundation event and Safeway.

He suffered through his worst year as a pro in 2015, missing the cut in three major championships. He had swing issues to work through with his coach, Chris Como, that were not helped by injury and inactivity.Im looking forward to seeing him play again, seeing what the state of his game is, said No. 1-ranked Jason Day, who has become a frequent texting buddy of Woods and said he sensed the 14-time major winner was close to a comeback.This time I think hes done it the right way by waiting and not coming back too soon. Theres been a couple of times where I feel like he may have come back too soon and kind of injured himself a little bit more, and thats whats kept him out of the game so long. But theres probably a lot of anticipation to see how the state of his game is and Im definitely looking forward to watching those tournaments and seeing how his body holds up and how the mental side and obviously the golf side of things hold up as well.The Safeway event will be played just two weeks after the Ryder Cup, where Woods will serve as a vice captain for the United States.Were always going to have high expectations because the guy is arguably one of the two greatest players in history if not the greatest, Mickelson said. Our expectations of him will always be high. It doesnt mean given all the health issues and challenges that hes faced... it doesnt mean thats fair.The Turkish Airlines Open (Nov. 3-6) is the first of three European Tour events known as the Final Series. Woods played the tournament in 2013 and tied for third.
