Creighton is led by star forward Doug McDermott, who averages 23.6 points per game and 7.4 rebounds. McDermott scored a season-high 39 points in a 74-52 victory over Missouri State on Friday to boost Creighton's winning streak to 10, including five straight conference games. McDermott made 15 of 19 field-goal attempts and added 10 rebounds against Missouri State. Senior center Gregory Echenique is averaging 10.4 points, 7.3 rebounds and shooting 67.6 percent from the field. The Blue Jays also have revenge on their minds after losing at Northern Iowa last year. The Blue Jays are an unselfish team as they rank amongst the nation's leaders with 18.2 assists per game. That may also explain why the Blue Jays are eighth in the MWC with 54.2 shots per game, but they rank second in the nation in field-goal percentage (52.2) and first from 3-point range at 45.2. The Panthers won't have an answer thisyear for McDermott and company.
