Creighton overcame a tough charge from Saint Joseph's to win, thanks to a big shot from star Doug McDermott.
Creighton went from a team that looked ready to take a step back to a team that can contend for the Big East title with the return of Grant Gibbs.
Creighton star forward Doug McDermott, a consensus first-team All-American this past season, will be back at Creighton for 2013-14.
Few knew that Doug McDermott shut it down for about two months this past summer. He needed a break -- both mentally and physically -- and part of the reason for his slow start this season can be attributed to the lengthy layoff.
