    Doug McDermott

    It’s only fitting that star junior Doug McDermott would go for a season-high 41 points in Creighton’s 91-80 win over Wichita State Saturday in Omaha, Neb. It was, after all, a winner-take-all game for the Missouri Valley’s regular season title. With the win, Creighton secures its first conference title since 2001. The Bluejays will now…

    Our first in-season bracket projection at Bracketville is due out Monday evening (Dec. 6).  With it will come a lot of debate (and some complaints).  Time to fire away with some notes and observations from a great first month of college hoops.  The first note is to remind ourselves that a lot of meaningful basketball remains.  Things don’t necessarily…
