WATCH: Creighton's Thomas throws down vicious dunk vs. Butler

Creighton re-entered this week's AP Top 25 with a bang; literally and figuratively. Junior guard Khyri Thomas played a big part in that.

Leading Big East foe Butler 49-32 at half, the Blue Jays shot over 50 percent from the floor (19-for-36) and assisted on 14 of their 19 baskets.

But the loudest play of the opening frame came when Thomas went up for a dunk after coming down the lane with 6:39 remaining. Bulldogs freshman guard Aaron Thompson was on the receiving end of the nasty posterization.

Creighton went on to win 85-74 for its fourth straight victory and improved to 13-3 (4-1) overall. Thomas finished with 14 points, three assists, three steals and two rebounds.
