OMAHA, Neb. (AP) When Maurice Watson transferred from Boston University to Creighton, he encountered plenty of doubters who told him he lacked the size to survive in the Big East.
Look at him now. He has led a team picked to finish second-to-last in the conference to the bubble of the NCAA Tournament conversation.
Watson played the best game of his career Tuesday night, challenging and usually beating bigger defenders with his drives while scoring 32 points in the Bluejays' 70-56 upset of fifth-ranked Xavier.
