ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Creighton’s Doug McDermott has picked up his second award for player of the year in as many days, accepting the honor Friday from the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

McDermott, who finished his career at Creighton as college basketball’s fifth-leading scorer, accepted the honor from Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson at AT&T Stadium, site of the Final Four. Robertson’s name is on the award.

The 6-foot-8 McDermott was selected The Associated Press player of the year on Thursday. He led the nation in scoring with a 26.7 average while shooting 52.6 percent from the field, including 44.9 percent from 3-point range.
