Highlight Moment:

En route to consensus National Player of the Year honors, McDermott averaged 26.7 points and 7 boards per game in 2013-14. Although the senior posted 12 30-point games and one forty-point outing in his final year at Creighton, his 30-point, 12-rebound contest against Louisiana-Lafayette in the NCAA Tournament opener was by far his best all-around game. In all, McDermott finished his career ranked fifth in NCAA history with 3,150 points as he broke numerous school records.

“McDermott is the best player in college basketball. And really, it's not even close. He's an offensive Michelangelo, lethal from the perimeter – he's shooting 44 percent from three-point range, the fourth straight season he has shot 40 percent or better from beyond the arc – with a knack for finding open spaces. A coach's son, McDermott sees the game in slow motion, moving without the ball, analyzing plays as they are happening, taking advantage of every angle. Against [Villanova] – a team that was victimized by McDermott a few weeks earlier, a team that game planned specifically to control him – McDermott connected on 13 of 17 field goal attempts, including 4-of-6 from three-point range [for 39 points].” – Chris Mannix,

“McBuckets had himself the kind of start to the tournament you want, dropping 30 on Louisiana LaFayette and doing so on 13-23 shooting with 12 rebounds to boot. The standard [comparison] for McDermott is a slightly bigger Kyle Korver. But here's another [comparison]: a smaller Ryan Anderson, one you can truly play at small forward but who can help you on the boards. Korver is 6-7, McDermott 6-8, and Anderson 6-10. McDermott's probably not going to be dropping double doubles or racking up the rebound rate like Anderson, but he also could play in big lineups at small forward or a small lineup at power forward. There's some flexibility with Dougy McD that has been noticeably absent from other elite college shooters." - Matt Moore,

“He stayed in school because he wanted to experience life as a senior, walked into a 2013-14 of tougher competition, slow-played his NBA decision right into a much deeper draft that could have meant a hit to his stock ... and soared up the boards. About a month before the June 26 selections, McDermott, projected for the second half of the first round if he had come out a year ago, now could go as high as No. 8 to the Kings or No. 9 to the Hornets, teams that need to improve their perimeter scoring.” - Scott Howard-Cooper
