Doug McDermott had 12 points as No. 19 Creighton cruised to a 75-49 victory over Indiana State on Saturday.
For McDermott, it was a season low for points, but it didn't matter. Creighton hit seven of its first 10 3-point shots, including four during a decisive 17-5 first-half run. The victory was the eighth in a row for the Bluejays (18-2), who improved to 8-1 in the Missouri Valley Conference.
Indiana State (11-9, 2-7) lost its third straight and seventh in nine games after a 9-2 start to the season.
Ethan Wragge and Jahenns Manigat each made back-to-back 3s as
Creighton built a 29-15 lead with its first-half surge.
The margin grew in the second half even though McDermott, second
in the nation with 23.8 points per game coming in, consistently
faced double- and triple-teams in the post.
Dwayne Latham had 15 points for the Sycamores to lead all scorers.
