Fox Sports revealed its 25-year anniversary all-Missouri Valley tournament team. Creighton was well represented.
Kyle Korver, the all-time leading scorer in MVC tournament history, was named a first-team guard and the tournament's all-time most outstanding player. He was listed as "the standard by which all other MVC tournament performances are judged."
Joining Korver with first-team honors was Doug McDermott, which Fox Sports wrote this about:
"With 160 career points in Arch Madness over eight games, Dougie Fresh would’ve passed fellow Jays star Korver on the all-time MVC tournament scoring charts … if Creighton hadn’t bolted for the Big East before his senior season."
Nate Funk and Ryan Sears were the second-team guards. Here's what Fox Sports wrote about each:
Funk: "A bridge between the Korver and McDermott eras, Funk netted 51 points, combined, in the semis and finals to lift the Jays to their sixth Arch Madness crown."
Sears: "The straw that stirred the Jays, the Iowa native still ranks among the all-time Arch Madness leaders in assists (42 in nine games) and steals (23)."
Bob Harstad and Ben Walker were on the third team, and former Creighton coach Dana Altman was named the tournament's all-time best coach. Current Jays and former UNI coach Greg McDermott was an honorable mention.
