The Creighton Bluejays again showed why they are the best shooting team in the country Wednesday night, shooting 55.6 percent overall and 53.6 from three en route to a 91-77 victory at home over the Missouri St. Bears.
Doug McDermott led the Creighton offensive charge with 29 points and ten rebounds -- both highs for the game. He also made five of his seven attempts from long distance.
It turns out Creighton's typical performance on the offensive end was needed, because the Bears refused to go quietly. Drew Wilson shot 8-of-13 and scored 19 points to lead Missouri State. As a team, the Bears shot 54.7 percent and limited themselves to nine turnovers.
Still, the Bears could not stop Creighton. Ethan Wragge had 15 points off the bench to supplement the outburst from McDermott, while Austin Chatman (14 points) and Grant Gibbs (10 points) scored in double figures out of the backcourt. Chatman also dished out ten assists.
