Creighton men's soccer expects spot in NCAA tournament

Josh Moran and Andrew Ribeiro were named to the Missouri Valley Conference All-Tournament Team Sunday, representing the Creighton men’s soccer team. The Jays were beat by host and fifth-seeded Bradley, who won the tournament on Sunday afternoon in Peoria, topping second-seeded Southern Illinois University Edwardsville 4-3 in a shootout after playing to a scoreless draw through two overtimes.
Creighton, which was eliminated by Bradley in the semifinals on Friday, will await their fate in the NCAA tournament when the 48-team field is scheduled to be announced at approximately 3:30 pm (CST) on ESPNU.
The Bluejays (12-5-1) had an RPI of 16 in the latest official RPI rankings announced by the NCAA last Tuesday. All three of Creighton’s regular-season losses came to teams in the RPI top-10 (Akron, SMU, Indiana) and the Bluejays are 3-3-0 against the RPI top-50 this season.
