ESPN Insider, John Gasaway named Creighton’s Doug McDermott NCAA’s best player. Gasaway said McDermott may not be the NBA’s No. 1 draft pick, but he believes McDermott’s consistency proves him to be the best in the NCAA. Out of 24 other men, Gasaway picked McDermott as No. 1.
An old Missouri Valley Conference contender, McDermott, has been achieving his career highs during this season. While on the floor he takes 37 percent of the shots and his free throw accuracy is 90 percent. Villanova’s head coach Jay Wright also believes McDermott is the best basketball player in the country.
