    No. 18 Creighton shot fewer threes in the rematch than they made in the opener, but that didn’t matter. The Bluejays still managed to put up triple-digits on No. 6 Villanova in Omaha, beating the Wildcats 101-80 behind 39 points from National Player of the Year favorite Doug McDermott. That means that in two games…

    GAME OF THE DAY: Villanova 63, No. 2 Kansas 59 In a day full of great games, Villanova knocking off No. 2 and previously undefeated Kansas takes the cake. The game was hardly pretty, but that doesn’t much matter to Jay Wright. In fact, it seemed like Wright’s game plan against Kansas was to play…

    UNLV v San Diego State

    Creighton’s defense isn’t particularly strong. That’s common knowledge for any college hoops fan. But, their offense? Perhaps the best in the game. Doug McDermott is arguably the best pure scorer in college basketball who can score from anywhere on the court, and they have a bevy of three-point shooters that can really fill it up.…

    Sometimes it’s hard to remember which teams switched over to new leagues. But while we’re finally wrapping our minds around the conference alignment changes, you can sometimes forget that teams are also recruiting for the new league they’re entering. Creighton — with its move from the Missouri Valley Conference to the Big East — is…

    Earlier today, the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook — otherwise known as the “Bible” for college hoops fans — released their first-team All-Americans, and the five names shouldn’t come as a surprise: Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart, Louisville’s Russ Smith, Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins, Michigan State’s Adreian Payne, and Creighton’s Doug McDermott.

Injuries and coaches decisions will often put a young player out of commission for a season, however. It’s up to the redshirtee to get the most he can out of the experience. Creighton’s redshirt freshman Isaiah Zierden,…
