Just as Northern Iowa ascended into the Top 25's popularity contest, Valley reality kicked in: last night, Creighton's home floor swallowed the Panthers up for the 10th straight time. That's the macro view; CU's won eight of their last nine (including the matchup with UNI in Iowa) since they lost Nate Funk
for the season. The Bluejays prevailed last night on the strength of a career-high 16 from Mr. Porter, 14 of which came in a second half that saw a 20-6 Creighton burst. When UNI tried to mount a comeback, Porter stuck a dagger in the run by nailing a three with six minutes left. It's likely that this loss will send the Panthers back out of the coaches' and writers' polls, as the voters will have once again deemed the Valley unworthy of poll love, no matter what the RPI says. But you and I, we know better.
