Omaha, NE (Sports Network) - Versatile Creighton guard Grant Gibbs has been accorded a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.

The 6-foot-5 guard was an All-MVC Honorable Mention during the 2012-13 season when he averaged a conference-best 5.8 assists per game to go with 8.5 points and 4.1 rebounds. Gibbs was one of just two players in the country last season to total at least 300 points, 200 assists and 145 rebounds. The other was Syracuse's Michael Carter-Williams.

Gibbs is one of four starters that will be back for the Bluejays this season, their first as a member of the new Big East Conference.
