(SAN ANTONIO) — Just like that, Doug McDermott’s college career has come to a close.
Isaiah Austin and Brady Heslip scored 17 points each as (6) Baylor routed third-seeded Creighton 85-55 to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday.
Baylor’s suffocating defense proved to be too much for McDermott, ending the career of one of college basketball’s most prolific scorers.
“We did a good job making it tough on him,” Bears coach Scott Drew said.
McDermott finished with 15 points for Creighton (27-8), but scored just three after halftime. McDermott ranks fifth on the NCAA career scoring list with 3,150 points.
“This is the worst we’ve played all season, and it just stinks that it’s the last one. But that doesn’t take away from all my memories here. It’s tough to go out this way,” McDermott said.
Five players scored in double figures for the Bears (26-11), who shot 64 percent from the field in the victory.
Baylor advances to play No. 2 seed Wisconsin on Thursday in Anaheim.
