He is also the Big East's career leading scorer in league games with 1,408 points."It's one thing to have to guard Markus Howard," Creighton coach Greg McDermott said. "He's probably the elite scorer in college basketball. It's another thing to have the efficiency on the offensive end when you're challenged with the effort it takes to guard him defensively." Creighton (20-6, 9-4) returned five of its top six scorers from a year ago, led by guards Marcus Zegarowski (15.8 points, 5.2 assists per game), Ty-Shon Alexander (16.7 points, 5.3 rebounds) and Mitch Ballock (12.3 points, 5.5 rebounds).
