Coming off wins over Butler and No. 6 Villanova, Creighton moved up to the No. 11 spot in this week’s Associated Press poll, 12th in the USA Today coaches rankings, and eighth in the NCAA RPI.
Doug McDermott collected three more awards in what is quickly becoming the greatest season in program history at Creighton. He was named BIG EAST Player of the Week for the seventh time this year, a single-season league record. McDermott was also named National Player of the Week by CBSSports.com andNBCSports.com and the Naismith Trophy as well.
McDermott averaged 32.5 points and 6.0 rebounds in a pair of wins last week as Creighton moved back into first place of the BIG EAST Conference.
Creighton (21-4, 11-2 BIG EAST) returns to action on Wednesday with a 7:02 pm game at Marquette.
