Creighton’s McDermott says he’s staying in school
McDermott set single-season school records with 834 points and 49-percent shooting from 3-point range, and he became the program’s leading scorer with 2,216 points in three seasons.
McDermott’s last game in Omaha was a memorable one. He made 15 of 18 shots while scoring a season-high 41 points in a regular season title-clinching victory over a Wichita State team that went on to the Final Four.
Late in the game fans in the sellout crowd of 18,613 at the CenturyLink Center implored McDermott to return for his senior season, chanting “One more year! One more year!”
On that day, McDermott said, it looked as if he probably would go pro.
“That would have been a crazy way to go out at the CenturyLink,” he said.
But after having time to think about his future, he said, he knew it would be best to return to school.
“It finally hit me,” he said. “I couldn’t be more excited.”
