Justin Moore scored 24 points and helped No. 10 Villanova capture the Big East title with a 72-60 win over No. 14 Creighton.

Creighton coach Greg McDermott is under fire for using language evocative of slavery. McDermott had apologized for urging his players to “stay on the plantation” in a postgame locker room talk. McDermott says he did not resign because “our guys wanted me to coach.”

Mitch Ballock led Creighton with 14 points.
