Creighton got a major scare from St. John’s at home, but in the end college basketball’s most prolific scorer came up with the big play.
Red Storm point guard Rysheed Jordan hit two free throws to tie the game at 60 with only 11 seconds left in regulation. Creighton moved the ball up the floor and swung it around before finding Doug McDermott, who had just enough space to bury a long, off-balance three pointer to win the game:
Doug McDermott finished the game with 39 points on 15-for-26 shooting, and added six rebounds for good measure. If you’re not watching McDermott this year, you’re missing the final few months of one of the great college scorers in recent memory.
