Another night, another win for Creighton…
but Doug McDermott made more history.
During Friday’s impressive win over DePaul, Doug passed J.J. Redick from Duke into 17th place on the NCAA Division I all-time scoring list.
Also, his 1,000th successful field goal of the season was the first occurrence of this rare feat since Indiana’s superstar Calbert Cheaney turned the trick during the 1992-1993 season.
Saturday afternoon…a few mild upsets took place:
Nebraska stunned Northwestern on the road, 53-49 even though more snow was continuing to fall outside the Evanston campus.
Iowa sent Michigan into submission, winning big by a 85-57 count. Roy Devyn Marble again leading the charge for the Hawkeyes scoring 22 of his 26 points in the first half. Iowa shot 48 percent and held Glenn Robinson III to only two points for the day.
Bruce Weber continues to cook really well, as Kansas State upended Texas 74-57.
Also, Pittsburgh survived a major scare at home against Virginia Tech but it took two overtimes to settle things as the Panthers outlasted 62-57.
Among the games to keep an eye on as the day turns to night…
Duke at Boston College
Baylor at Oklahoma
Cincinnati at SMU
Wichita State at Northern Iowa
Gonzaga at Memphis in ESPN’s big prime time matchup
Nevada at San Diego State
