LOGAN — Former Utah State basketball guard Steven Ashworth announced he is committing to Creighton. He made the announcement live on The Field of 68 YouTube channel Monday afternoon.
In three seasons at USU, Ashworth played 97 games with 42 starts. He averaged 10.6 points, 3.6 assists and 3.3 rebounds. Ashworth earned First Team All-Mountain West honors this season after averaging 16.2 points, 4.5 assists and shooting 43.4 percent on 3-pointers. He entered the transfer portal on April 6, shortly after former USU head coach Ryan Odom left to take the same job at VCU. Had Ashworth stayed at USU, the pace he set this last year could have carried him over the 2,000 point mark at USU and easily given him multiple USU 3-point shooting records.
Creighton went 24-13 last year, finishing third in the Big East with a conference record of 14-6. The Blue Jays earned an NCAA Tournament bid and were a No. 6 seed, making it all the way to the Elite Eight where they lost to San Diego State.
According to The Field of 68, Ashworth’s other top choices next to Creighton included Utah State, BYU, Gonzaga, Washington and VCU.
