Creighton's Alexander receives honor

Creighton junior Ty-Shon Alexander has been named to the Preseason Top 50 Watch List for the John R. Wooden Award. 

Chosen by a preseason poll of national college basketball experts, the list is comprised of 50 student-athletes who are the early front-runners for the most prestigious honor in college basketball.  Alexander led Creighton with 15.7 points per game, 41 steals and 97 three-pointers en route to Honorable Mention All-BIG EAST status a year ago.  Alexander was named Preseason First Team All-BIG EAST last month by league coaches, and a Preseason Second Team All-American by Street & Smith's.  He is also one of 20 preseason candidates for the Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year Award.
