    He bumped knees with Kelan.

    Very sad to hear the news. Creighton was on its way to the Final 4.

    Been offline for a couple days. Just heard about extent of injury to Watson. Such a shame. I do wish him all the best. I feel bad for the kid and the program. They were truly a great team. I still think they are. And our game against them at Hinkle won't be a gimme just because he is done.

    Would be true class if he could step on court in an NCAA Tournament game like Mateen Cleaves at Michigan State and at least say he got in a game. The BB Gods owe him that much at least. An even better scenario would be that near the end of a tournament game (pretty sure Creighton will win Round 1 fairly easily), he gets in and goes to the post. Someone dribbles to him, hands him the ball and let's him make a layup so he is actually in the book. Maybe the opponent can inbound the ball to him so he gets credit for a steal too.

    There can still be class, humility, sportsmanship and compassion in sports.

    This Sporting News article mentioned Derek Anderson of Kentucky in the '97 tournament, pretty similar to what you described. http://www.sportingnews.com/ncaa-ba...mcdermott-big-easts/doj365n79iws1ifdxsj7gd8mr
    Basically he got to shoot a technical foul FT since it was a dead ball. Would love to see Watson in for mop-up time or something similar, just to get his name in the books of the NCAA tournament - he's only ever been to the NIT (once each at Creighton and Boston U).

    Feel bad for Watson. Hope he recovers and is able to continue playing somewhere.

    That kind of sucks, but it can't be too bad or the news would get a hold of it...

    Well I guess I was right and wrong. It is that serious and the news got a hold of it!

    It's good to know Creighton maintains high standards. This would certainly be tolerated at some other so-called institutions of higher learning. I understand due process is not complete.

    It'd be interesting to see if they did the same thing with a healthy Watson. Much easier to boot a star player whose career is over anyway

    Not sure if the Big East has required curriculum on assault prevention; but if not they should.

    Seems that would be basic "right and wrong 101". Creighton has had good reputation but I suppose that could be a consideration if he was healthy. Since we won't know the specifics, opinions may differ. A coach and staff can do their homework and still never know an individual's true character.

    What do you mean by teenager? Obviously any type of sexual assault is awful, but a teenager can be a 19 year old college student.

    The article states it was a 19 year old
