The NCAA has awarded Creighton's Grant Gibbs a sixth season of eligibility, a huge victory for a Bluejays basketball team that is moving into the Big East next season. Gibbs led the Missouri Valley Conference in assists each of the last two seasons and will be a senior in 2013-14. Creighton is 57-14 and reached the NCAA tournament twice with Gibbs in the lineup the past two seasons. Gibbs' career has been interrupted by injuries and his transfer from Gonzaga. He said after the season it was a long shot that he would receive an extra year. Gibbs averaged 8.5 points, 5.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds last season and joined Syracuse's Michael Carter-Williams as the nation's only players with at least 300 points, 200 assists and 145 rebounds.
