The BIG EAST conference named Creighton's Brittany Witt its Defensive Player of the Week.
Witt and company are tipping off BIG EAST play this week. The message to the seven newcomers, don't take these games lightly.
"We always talk how non-conference is crazy but we never talk about what conference is like," said senior outside hitter Taryn Kloth. "Conference is tough as well. We have a lot of great teams and a lot of great competition so we have to win. We have to go in to each game thinking we have to win this game."
The Jays start conference play on September 21 against DePaul at D.J Sokol Arena. No. 10 Creighton then hosts No. 21 Marquette in a Top 25 matchup Sunday at 1 p.m.
