Tulsa's pick-its-poison defensive plan Saturday had no antidote for Creighton guard Austin Chatman.
In an attempt to provide some help to try to slow All-American Doug McDermott, the Golden Hurricane elected to play off the 6-foot Chatman. He responded by making 7 of 9 shots from the field, including four 3-point baskets, in scoring a career-high 19 points in No. 23 Creighton's 82-72 victory.
