Creighton Gets Offensive Boost From Sophomore
Posted: 20 December, 2012
OMAHA (AP) - Avery Dingman’s opportunity didn’t come the way he wanted it to, but he sure took advantage of it. The sophomore guard played the best game of his career in No. 17 Creighton’s 71-54 victory over Tulsa on Wednesday night. He set personal highs with 21 points, five 3-pointers, three steals and 23 minutes. Dingman was good on his first seven shots and scored 14 points in the second half to help the Bluejays (11-1) stave off Tulsa’s comeback. He also had three rebounds. Doug McDermott overcame a slow start to score 16 points, and Gregory Echenique added 15 points and eight rebounds in Creighton’s fifth straight win.
