PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Doug McDermott is an All-American and a two-time Missouri Valley Conference player of the year.
His next goal is more team based. McDermott wants to lead No. 7 Creighton (27-7) on a deep tournament run. The Bluejays won a tournament game last season and believe they can build on that this March.
The 10th-seeded Cincinnati Bearcats (22-11) are about to find all about the dynamic challenge McDermott presents.
The Bluejays-Bearcats matchup is more than a second-round game. It's a preview of Big East past vs. future.
Creighton, Butler and Xavier are set to shed the mid-major label and join Big East holdovers Providence, Georgetown, St. John's, Villanova, Marquette, Seton Hall and DePaul next season. Cincinnati is staying behind in the football-based, soon-to-be-former Big East.
