ST. LOUIS (AP) -Earlier this decade, Kyle Korver won two Missouri Valley Conference championships at Creighton.
Hours before playing for the Utah Jazz against the Denver Nuggets, he had some advice for a younger brother looking to join the club.
Drake senior forward Klayton Korver said Kyle text-messaged him to ``have fun and light it up'' hours before the top-seeded Bulldogs beat Creighton on Saturday to advance to the tournament championship game for the first time in school history.
``He gets animated,'' said Klayton Korver, who had 13 points and six rebounds and hit three 3-pointers, one of them from NBA range. ``I'm sure he was sitting there screaming at every thing I did, good or bad.
``He's probably just as excited as I am.''
Klayton Korver, a 6-foot-5 fifth-year senior, keeps in close contact with Kyle, the Valley player of the year in 2002 and 2003 while helping Creighton win consecutive conference tournament titles. The two text message at least three or four times a week.
Klayton Korver is a long-range threat, just like his older brother, leading the school in 3-pointers as a freshman and sophomore. He's also an integral part of a 27-4 team that has broken the school record for victories.
``It's been amazing, especially after all the rough seasons we've gone through,'' Klayton Korver said. ``This is great, considering how far this team has come.''
