For Doug McDermott and Creighton, the last two years at the NCAA Tournament left them bitter after third-round losses robbed them of a chance to go farther than any Bluejays team before them. They were also a major motivating factor in keeping this team together for another try.
With that goal in mind, McDermott skipped a chance to enter the NBA draft, rallying a senior-laden group for another big season. Third-seeded Creighton (27-7) plays No. 6 seed Baylor (25-11) at 6:40 p.m. Sunday in the West Regional in San Antonio for a chance to advance to the round of 16 for the first time in school history. The game will air on truTV.
Creighton's four senior starters give the Bluejays a blend of maturity and confidence to support a scorer like McDermott, who leads the nation at 27 points per game.
