Doug McDermott Opts To Return For Senior Season At Creighton

Doug McDermott will return to Creighton for his senior season.

McDermott explored the option of departing early for the NBA draft, but ultimately decided that returning to school was in his best interests.

Based on evaluations he received from the draft advisory committee, McDermott said, “There was no doubt in my mind that I would have been a first-round pick.''

McDermott's father, Creighton coach Greg McDermott, recommended his son go pro.

“He knew my dream is to play in the NBA, and he just felt that this was too good of an opportunity to pass up,'' Doug said. “But the way I look at it, if I can play in the NBA, I can play there the next year just as well as I can next year.

“I feel there are things I can work on. I feel I can still improve my draft stock by playing in the Big East. There are a lot of areas that I can get better at, and I just felt I'd be more comfortable doing it here in Omaha.''
