Throwback SI cover has Creighton's McDermott as Larry Bird Published: March 12, 2014

The NCAA Tournament starts next week and Sports Illustrated is turning back the clock with a vintage cover idea.

Creighton star forward Doug McDermott and two Bluejay cheerleaders grace the cover of the March 17 edition of SI, reenacting the iconic pose of Indiana State's Larry Bird and two cheerleaders from No. 28, 1977.

The cover is a part of the magazine's NCAA Tournament Preview.
