The Creighton men's basketball team is just over ten days away from its scrimmage against Winona State. 

Tuesday afternoon the team held its annual media day and photo shoot. 

On the court the Jays are making final tweaks and preparing for its secret scrimmage against Minnesota. 

Picked to finish in the middle of the BIG EAST conference by outside rankings, the players are trying to silence the critics right out of the gate.

"We're looking really good," said junior forward Martin Krampelj. "People are underestimating us. We have a good group of freshman and freshman who are now sophomores got a lot better this summer and I think we're going to be a tough team this year."

The Bluejays open up regular season play on November 6 against Western Illinois.
