This year's Jimmer Fredette (sweet-shooting, high-scoring white guy from a mid-major school with questionable NBA athleticism), McDermott generates plenty of debate on how he'll do at the next level. In college, he's indisputably elite, having posted 20-plus points in all but four of the Bluejays' 30 regular season games, averaging more than Creighton's next three leading scorers combined. Wiggins, Parker, and Randle get more headlines because of what they could do rather than what they have done. Nobody in the tournament has McDermott's track record as an offensive force. If Creighton advances multiple rounds, he'll be the reason.
