Doug McDermott needed 34 points on his senior night to become the eighth player in NCAA history to score 3,000 points. He got 45.
You could not have written the script any better that night. McDermott's season did not end in storybook fashion—Creighton was blown out by Baylor in the round of 32—but his senior night was like a Disney production.
I was lucky enough to be there. And everyone, including the NBA scouts in attendance, felt like they'd won the lottery that night just getting to be there.
"That's the most fun I've had watching a basketball game," an NBA front-office executive sitting next to me on press row said in the final minute.
The signature moment, the one that should be blown up and put on a billboard, was father and son embracing after McDermott topped 3,000.
He needed just two more points, and the Creighton students held up two fingers and chanted "two more points! Two more points!"
McDermott was all about giving more that night. He gave them three, and then he went ahead and topped his old career high by one point. Thirty-one seconds after eclipsing 3,000, his dad called timeout to recognize the moment and gave his son a hug in front of the Creighton bench.
"It was without question a moment of time I'll never forget," Greg said.
Us too, Greg. Us too.
