McDermott Named District VI Player of the Year By USBWA
Release: 03/11/2014
OMAHA, Neb. -- Creighton forward Doug McDermott has been named the District VI Player of the Year by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association for the second straight season. He's also a First Team All-District pick for a third straight season.

District VI consists of schools from Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota.

In addition, McDermott also claimed First Team All-America honors from NBCSports.com, the site announced on Monday. He's previously been honored by BleacherReport.com and Sporting News with First Team All-America accolades, and by BleacherReport.com as its National Player of the Year.

McDermott leads the nation in scoring (26.5 ppg.), ranks second in field goals and third in points scored. He's scored 20 points or more in 26-of-30 games this season, including a career-high 45 points in Saturday's Senior Night win over Providence. In the process, he's moved up to seventh in NCAA history with 3,011 career points. He is the nation's first player in 25 years with three straight years of 750 points or more and one of three men all-time with at least 3,000 points and 1,000 rebounds.

Ranked 14th nationally, Creighton (24-6) returns to action on Thursday at 6:02 pm Central when it plays a quarterfinal round game vs. DePaul or Georgetown at the BIG EAST Tournament, presented by New York Life in New York City.
