Omaha, NE - The Creighton men's basketball team has been picked to finish in third place during its first season in the BIG EAST Conference in a preseason poll of league coaches.
In addition, two-time First Team All-American Doug McDermott was named the 2013-14 BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year. It's the third straight season the Creighton senior has been honored as Preseason Player of the Year by a conference after earning the honor as both a sophomore and junior in the Missouri Valley Conference. He would live up to the hype both previous occasions.
