NEW YORK (AP) Doug McDermott is playing in New York City this week, just a few blocks from Broadway. And by the looks of it, he plans to put on a show.
The nation's leading scorer delivered Thursday night with a dazzling shooting display in his Big East tournament debut, scoring a record 27 of his 35 points in the first half for No. 14 Creighton during an 84-62 victory over DePaul at Madison Square Garden.
"As a kid, you dream of playing in venues like this. The Garden is about as good as it gets. I watched the tournament growing up a lot," McDermott said. "So just to be a part of it definitely was in the back of my mind. And in warmups, it felt surreal out there."
