Men's basketball guard Grant Gibbs has been awarded a sixth
season of eligibility, Creighton University was notified by the NCAA today.

Gibbs led the Missouri Valley Conference in assists each of the last two
seasons and will be a senior for the Bluejays in 2013-14. With Gibbs in the
line-up the past two seasons, Creighton is 57-14 and is one of 13 teams to
earn NCAA Tournament victories in both campaigns.

The Marion, Iowa, native averaged 8.5 points, 5.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds
per game last season, when he joined Syracuse's Michael Carter-Williams as
the nation's only players with at least 300 points, 200 assists and 145
rebounds.

Gibbs' return gives Creighton four returning starters from a team that went
28-8 last season and swept MVC regular-season and tournament titles in
2012-13.

The Bluejays joined the BIG EAST Conference on Monday.
