Creighton forward Doug McDermott has been named the Missouri Valley player of the week after averaging 27.0 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists in a pair of double-digit victories last week.

McDermott has now earned the league’s top weekly award six times this season, tying the Valley’s all-time single-season mark first set by Bradley’s Hersey Hawkins in 1987-88. Hawkins (14) is the only player with more career player of the week recognitions than McDermott (11).
