|Jonas Dufek won two games and MVP honors at the Missouri Valley Conference tournament, then improved to 12-1, 2.08 by beating Georgia with a 10-strikeout complete game in Creighton's NCAA regional opener. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound righthander's stuff and command improved this season. He boosted his fastball from 87-89 mph a year ago to 89-91, tightened his slider and did a better job of locating both pitches. He has a loose arm and a sound delivery.
|Creighton won its first Missouri Valley Conference regular-season title since 2005 and its first MVC tournament championship since 2007, led by a pair of seniors who went undrafted a year ago. Outfielder Trever Adams has been the Bluejays' most dangerous hitter since transferring from Hutchinson (Kan.) CC. Strong and compact at 6 feet and 200 pounds, he had no trouble adjusting to the new bats. He carried a .392 average, a MVC-best 14 homers and a 42-game on-base streak into the NCAA regional playoffs. The righthanded hitter can get overly aggressive at the plate at times. His bat, power, speed and arm are all solid tools, and he profiles well as a right fielder.
