Baylor Shuts Down McDermott, Crushes Creighton


SAN ANTONIO (AP)   Isaiah Austin and Brady Heslip each scored 17 points and Baylor shut down Creighton’s Doug McDermott with suffocating defense, ending the career of the one of the most prolific scorers in college history with an 85-55 win Sunday night in the NCAA tournament West Regional.

McDermott, who averaged 27 points this season, finished with 15 but had just three in the first half as Baylor built a 20-point lead. McDermott ranks fifth on the NCAA career scoring list.

#6 seed Baylor (26-11) is in their 3rd Sweet 16 since 2010, and will meet up with #2 seed Wisconsin on Thursday in Anaheim, CA.
