NEW YORK (AP) — Doug McDermott, the nation's leading scorer who led Creighton to a second-place finish in its first year in the Big East, is the unanimous choice as the conference's player of the year.
At this time a year ago, Creighton men’s basketball fans were on their way in droves to St. Louis for the Missouri Valley Conference tournament.
