Continued: Reusse: Eden Prairie's Wragge and Creighton making a splash in Big East

The official number for Wragge is 154 shots — and 148 are threes. He’s made 74 of those, for an astounding 50 percent from behind the line.

Wragge had no Division I offers of significance in the summer of 2009, before his senior year. “Later in July, he was playing in an AAU tournament and put on a shooting exhibition,” Flom said. “My phone lit up that night and stayed that way for two weeks.

“My cellphone bill for the month was $830. There were schools offering him scholarships that hadn’t seen Ethan play.”

Dana Altman was the coach who signed Wragge. He left Creighton for Oregon after Ethan’s freshman season in 2010. Greg McDermott escaped the heat he was getting at Iowa State and brought Doug with him. Two NCAA tournaments, and now the Big East, have followed.

“There are a few diehards around who miss the Valley, but most people are really into the Big East,” Wragge said. “I’m sure it helps that we’re off to a good start.”

First place, 6-1 and a three-game homestand of Georgetown, St. John’s and DePaul, starting with a “pinkout?” If I was a sports fan there, that would beat the Hades out of Peyton Manning shouting “Omaha” a few dozen times in the Super Bowl.

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
