Congratulations to the Creighton Mens Basketball team for advancing in the NCAA Tournament.
After missing two crucial free throws with 8.7 seconds left, junior guard Josh Jones blocked a 3-point attempt by Trevor Releford on the other end of the floor to help Creighton end its 10-year NCAA tournament drought with a 58-57 victory over Alabama on Friday.
Doug McDermott had 16 points and 10 rebounds as the eighth-seeded Bluejays overcame an 11-point deficit in the second half and then held on to win despite missing three free throws in the final 32 seconds.
“It’s been 10 years since our last win, so that’s great for our great fans — an incredible feeling,” said Creighton coach Greg McDermott, father of the team’s star player. “Here we beat Alabama at their own game. I would not have guessed that we could win a game [in the 50s]. I thought we were going to need to be in the 70s and get the tempo in our favor the entire game.”
