Morning Dump for 11/12/13; Big East Style

The Morning Dump is a daily post compiling a list of links and commentary of various Big East topics.

  • The Creighton Bluejays cruised by the UMKC Kangaroos at home last night 96-73.  Doug McDermott imposed his will all game long, scoring 25 points in the first half and finishing with 37 on the night.  McDermott will get all the attention and rightfully so, but his point guard, Austin Chatman, also had a good night.  He finished with 12 points, 9 assists and 7 rebounds, flirting with a triple double.


  • McDermott may not be considered a superstar in the game (I’m guessing fans of his – myself included – would tend to disagree), but he is who he is.  If he was any different and not true to himself, would he be as good as he is or still playing at Creighton today?  Keep doing your thing, Doug.
