OMAHA, Neb. -- Men's basketball guard Grant Gibbs has been awarded a sixth season of eligibility, Creighton University was notified by the NCAA today.

Gibbs led the Missouri Valley Conference in assists each of the last two seasons and will be a senior for the Bluejays in 2013-14. With Gibbs in the line-up the past two seasons, Creighton is 57-14 and is one of 13 teams to earn NCAA Tournament victories in both campaigns.

The Marion, Iowa, native averaged 8.5 points, 5.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game last season, when he joined Syracuse's Michael Carter-Williams as the nation's only players with at least 300 points, 200 assists and 145 rebounds.
