Creighton won its first outright MVC title since 2000-01 and record 12th MVC Tournament title in their final season in the Valley. The seventh-seeded Jays defeated Cincinnati in the second round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to second-seeded Duke.

Doug McDermott set CU records for points in a season and career points while repeating as MVC Player of the Year and MVC Tournament MVP. McDermott was also named First Team All-American by the Associated Press, USBWA, NABC and Basketball Times and finished the season leading the nation in points scored and field goals made. Grant Gibbs led the MVC in assists for a second straight year and was named honorable-mention all-MVC along with teammate Gregory Echenique.

Creighton’s 57 wins were its most ever for a two-year span and its 80 victories its most for a three-year span. CU won NCAA Tournament games in consecutive seasons for the first time. Creighton finished the year ranked sixth nationally with a Valley-record average home attendance of 17,155.
