OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Three members of the Creighton men’s basketball team earned All-BIG EAST honors on Sunday.

Junior point guard Marcus Zegarowski was named to the All-BIG EAST first team, senior forward Damien Jefferson was named to the All-BIG EAST second team, and senior forward Denzel Mahoney earned an All-BIG EAST honorable mention selection.

Zegarowski, who was honored as a member of the All-BIG EAST second team last season, led Creighton with 15.4 points per game and with 4.39 assists per game this year.

This is the first time Jefferson and Mahoney have received such honors.
