Scouting #11/12 Creighton
Creighton owns a 22-4 record, including double-digit wins over top-65 RPI teams in Nebraska, Arizona State, Cal, Xavier, Butler, Georgetown and Villanova (twice).
The Bluejays are in first place in their first BIG EAST campaign with a 12-2 league mark, one-half game ahead of No. 9 Villanova. The Bluejays own wins by 28 and 21 points over the Wildcats, and victories over preseason league favorite Marquette by 18 and 15, as well.
Seven-time BIG EAST Player of the Week Doug McDermott (25.8 ppg., 7.1 rpg., 44.8 3FG%) is the nation’s only returning consensus First Team All-American, as well as the nation’s leading returning scorer. He’s led the Jays in scoring and rebounding each of the past three seasons, was named Preseason BIG EAST Player of the Year, has scored 19 or more points in all but two games this year, and owns nine games of 30 or more points. He’s also hit game-winning shots in two of CU’s last five wins, and three victories overall this year.
Austin Chatman (7.6 ppg., 3.4 rpg., 4.3 apg.) and Jahenns Manigat (7.7 ppg., 44.4 3FG%) help man the Bluejay backcourt and have combined for 193 assists against just 63 turnovers this year. Grant Gibbs (6.6 ppg., 4.4 apg., 3.8 rpg.) suffered a dislocated kneecap on Jan. 7 at DePaul, but returned to the line-up one month later and has averaged 8.0 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists in five games since then.
Helping to replace Gregory Echenique at the “5” spot have been the duo of Ethan Wragge (11.4 ppg., 49.4 3FG%) and Will Artino (6.3 ppg., 68.0 FG%). Wragge ranks in the top-seven nationally in three-point percentage and three-pointers made per game, while Artino had his first career double-double on Feb. 13 at Butler.

The Coaches
Greg McDermott (Northern Iowa, 1988) is in the midst of his fourth season as head coach at Creighton. He led CU to a 28-8 mark last year, and is now 102-34 with the Bluejays.

The Series With Seton Hall
Seton Hall leads the all-time series with Creighton, 6-2, though the teams have never played in Omaha.

Greg McDermott is 1-0 against Seton Hall and coach Kevin Willard. Willard is 1-1 all-time against Creighton, leading his 2009-10 Iona team to a 63-55 win over the Bluejays at the Old Spice Classic near Orlando, Fla.
