Creighton defeated Cincinnati 67-63 Friday, despite attempting 22 fewer field goals. The Bluejays outscored the Bearcats by 18 points from the foul line. Doug McDermott made more free throws (11) than the entire Cincinnati team attempted (9). McDermott and Gregory Echenique each drew six fouls, which is one more than the 11 Cincinnati drew as a team.
Doug McDermott is the fifth player in Creighton history to score 25 or more points in an NCAA Tournament game.
Third-year California men's basketball coach Cuonzo Martin has received a contract extension taking him through the 2020-21 season.
The number of transfers is at an all-time high, and there are several who will step in and help their teams right away. Florida's Canyon Barry, who came from Charleston, should help the Gators.
It's no surprise that the ACC is loaded again, and it should be college basketball's best conference starting with Duke at the top.
