Doug McDermott scored 19 points Tuesday and played after an injury scare to his left shoulder, keeping Creighton unbeaten in the Big East with a 81-62 win over DePaul.

McDermott, a two-time consensus All-American, briefly left the game with 1:24 remaining in the first after appearing to jam his left shoulder after colliding with DePaul's Peter Ryckbosch. McDermott returned with 19.5 seconds left and ended the half with a buzzer-beating layup, giving the Bluejays a 37-32 lead.
