Omaha, NE (Sports Network) – Doug McDermott scored 31 points to lead the 12th-
ranked Creighton Bluejays to their 11th consecutive victory, a 79-68 decision
over the Northern Iowa Panthers. McDermott, the reigning Missouri Valley
Conference Player of the Week, shot 12-of-22 to go along with four rebounds
and three assists. Austin Chatman had 12 points and Grant Gibbs added 11
with seven assists for Creighton (17-1, 6-0 MVC), which is off to its best
start through 18 games in school history. Anthony James paced the Panthers

Final Score: St. John’s 67, (20) Notre Dame 63

New York, NY (Sports Network) – D’Angelo Harrison made up for a quiet night by
hitting a late go-ahead 3-pointer and coming up with a big block in the final
seconds, as St. John’s knocked off No. 20 Notre Dame, 67-63, at Madison Square
Garden. Harrison had just eight points — 12 below his season average — but
none were bigger than his triple that put St. John’s in front, 64-63, with 2
1/2 minutes remaining. Blocks by Harrison and Chris Obekpa in the final
minute, as well as Jamal Branch hitting two free throws with 7.1 ticks to
go, sealed the outcome and stopped the Red Storm’s two-game skid. JaKarr
Sampson netted 17 points, Phil Greene IV had 13 and Amir Garrett added 11 for
St. John’s (10-7, 2-3 Big East), which held the Fighting Irish to 1- of-9
shooting from 3-point range. Notre Dame (14-3, 2-2) came in hitting 42
percent from long range, but found little success offensively outside Eric
Atkins, who led all scorers with 21 points to go with four assists and six
steals.
