Creighton’s Funk cleared to play next season

Omaha, NE (Sports Network) – Creighton guard Nate Funk, the 2004-05 runner-up
for Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year, was granted a medical
hardship waiver for his injury-shortened 2005-06 season and will be able to
return to the school and play next season.

Funk averaged 17 points and 4.7 rebounds in just six games last year before
undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery on January 5.

In 2004-05, Funk was named first-team all-MVC after leading Creighton to a
23-11 record and the NCAA Tournament. He led the Jays in scoring with a 17.8
average and rebounding with 5.1 per game.
