Doug McDermott's finest hour at Creighton ended Tuesday night with him making the biggest shot of his illustrious career.

The two-time All-American delivered a game-winning 25-footer with 2.5 seconds to play, capping a 39-point performance that carried the No. 20 Bluejays to a 63-60 victory over St. John's before a sellout crowd of 17,515 at the CenturyLink Center.

“A big-time shot by a big-time player,” Red Storm coach Steve Lavin said.

It was the kind of shot to finish off a virtuoso performance that should solidify McDermott as the front-runner for college basketball's player-of-year awards.

“I don't spend much time thinking about that, and I don't think Doug does, either,” Creighton coach Greg McDermott said. “He came back for a reason, and he wanted to enjoy the time he has left with this group of guys.
