Creighton coach Greg McDermott and his son Doug have learned a lot about their roles and each other over three seasons together. Touted as a national player of the year candidate, Doug is back to write his final chapter for the Bluejays.
Doug McDermott's decision to stay at Creighton means he is getting a rare chance to play for the same school, in the same arena, but have a completely different experience in a new league -- a Big East.
