No. 14 Creighton vs. Arizona State final score: Bluejays take Vegas tourney, McDermott MVP

Eric Francis

Jahii Carson of ASU and Doug McDermott of Creighton were both en fuego in the championship game of the Las Vegas Classic, leading their teams in points.

In the finale of the Las Vegas Classic, the Arizona State Sun Devils had to contend with one of the hottest players of tournament, Creighton forward Doug McDermott. The junior scored 29 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Bluejays in their 87-73 victory over ASU and was named the tournament MVP.

The next Creighton player to come near McDermott in points was Ethan Wragge with 13 off the bench. Of the other seven Bluejays to score points, none of them reached double digits. No. 14 Creighton out-rebounded the Sun Devils 35 to 28. The only blemish on the victory was starter Austin Chatman's team high six turnovers and five personal fouls.

Arizona State had a hot hand of its own in Jahii Carson. The guard scored 30 points and added four rebounds, seven assists, four steals and turned the ball over five times. Carson went 2-for-4 in three pointers and hit 10-of-11 free throws. ASU's starters turned the ball over 14 times to Creighton's starters 12.
