BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Doug McDermott had a season-high 34 points and nine rebounds with more than a dozen NBA scouts watching, and No. 16 Creighton ran its winning streak to four games with a 74-64 victory against California on Saturday night.
Gregory Echenique added 10 points, 11 rebounds and five blocked shots for the Bluejays (10-1). McDermott, averaging 22.7 points coming in, posted his seventh straight game with 20 or more points and became the first Creighton player with consecutive 30-point games since Bob Harstad in 1990. It was McDermott’s third 30-point effort this season. McDermott scored 18 of his points in the first half and shot 6 for 8 from the floor with a pair of 3-pointers.
