At 25.9 PPG, Doug McDermott is far and away Creighton’s leading scorer. So it stands to reason that anyone facing the Bluejays would want to double or triple-team McDermott in an effort to keep him in check.

During one juncture of Sunday’s game in Omaha, Villanova went a step forward and quintuple-teamed McDermott – i.e. every Wildcat on the floor was guarding him.

In retrospect, maybe ‘Nova should have implemented this defense throughout the game. McDermott tied his season high with 39 points in Creighton’s 101-80 rout.
