The Creighton men's basketball team is back in the top 20 after a 35-point win over DePaul. The Jays had just one game last week and had fallen out of the top 20 after a tough home loss to Xavier.

Creighton now sits at No. 20 in the AP Top 25. The Jays have been ranked in all 15 polls this season, which is tied for the second longest streak in program history. 

Creighton joins two other BIG EAST teams in the top 25 this week, including No. 2 Villanova and No. 24 Butler. The Bluejays hit the road to face Seton Hall Wednesday at 7 p.m. before returning home to battle with Georgetown Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
