INDIANAPOLIS — Creighton showed that when a game gets tight at historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, it pays to have a guy on your side that could give Jimmy Chitwood a run for his money.
Doug McDermott buried a 3-point shot from about 24 feet with 47.8 seconds left Thursday night to put the No. 18 Bluejays ahead, and four free throws by Austin Chatman in the final 18 seconds finished off a hard-fought, 68-63 Big East victory over Butler.
