Top Performers: Week 18

Doug McDermott, Creighton

Creighton's Doug McDermott

McDermott's week saw him pass Danning Manning, Oscar Robertson and Hersey Hawkins into seventh-place on the all-time Division I scoring list with 3,011 points. McDermott scored a career-high 45 points in an 88-73 win against Providence this past Saturday, making 17 of 25 shots, including 5 of 7 3-pointers. In a 75-63 loss to Georgetown this past Tuesday, he recorded a double-double with 22 points and 12 rebounds.


Russ Smith, Louisville

Louisville's Russ Smith
Smith played two totally different games in helping Louisville to a pair of wins. First, he became the first Louisville player in the past 15 years to make at least six 3-pointers without a miss. He went 6-for-6 in scoring 26 points in an 84-71 win against SMU this past Wednesday. Then, in an 81-48 blowout win against Connecticut this past Saturday in which he didn't need to score -- he took only two shots -- he dished out a career-high 13 assists.


T.J. Warren, NC State
NC State's T.J. Warren
Warren became the first player since 2011 with back-to-back 40-plus games and joined NC State legend David Thompson as the only Wolfpack players to accomplish the feat. Warren scored 41 points on 16-of-22 shooting in a 74-67 win against Pittsburgh last Monday. He bettered his career high by one in a 78-68 win against Boston College on Sunday, scoring 42 points. He also had 13 rebounds in that game.
