Gregory Echenique had a season-best 20 points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots in just 20 minutes, and No. 25 Creighton also clicked from outside in a 99-71 rout of Evansville in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament semifinal Saturday.

Doug McDermott added 14 points and Antoine Young 13 for the
second seeded Bluejays (27-5), who were 8 for 10 from 3-point range
in the first half while building a 19-point cushion and shot 60
percent overall. They entered the day leading the nation with 50.7
field goal percentage and were third in 3-point shooting at 42
percent.

Creighton carries a six-game winning streak into the championship game against No. 4 seed Illinois State.

Kenny Harris had 17 points and Colt Ryan 13 for Evansville (16-15), which has lost 14 of its last 16 to Creighton.
