AP - Sports

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Boston University point guard Maurice Watson Jr. is transferring to Creighton.

Bluejays coach Greg McDermott announced that Watson signed a letter of intent Tuesday and will have two years of eligibility starting in 2015-16.

The 5-foot-10 Watson averaged 13.3 points and 7.1 assists per game last season. He was an All-Patriot League first-team selection.

McDermott said Watson, from Philadelphia, is an unselfish player who's a capable scorer and will be a good fit in the Bluejays' up-tempo offense.
