  • Creighton’s Gibbs Gets Sixth Year

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Creighton got some good news as it heads into the Big East Conference.

    Senior guard Grant Gibbs was awarded a sixth season of eligibility, the school learned from the NCAA.

    The 6-foot-5 Gibbs led the Missouri Valley Conference in assists each of the last two seasons and will be a senior for the Bluejays in 2013-14. With Gibbs in the line-up the past two seasons, Creighton is 57-14 and is one of 13 teams to earn NCAA Tournament victories in both campaigns.

    The Marion, Iowa, native averaged 8.5 points, 5.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game last season, when he joined Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams as the nation’s only players with at least 300 points, 200 assists and 145 rebounds.

    Gibbs’ return gives Creighton four returning starters from a team that went 28-8 last season and swept MVC regular-season and tournament titles in 2012-13.

    The Bluejays joined the Big East  on Monday.
