Doug McDermott had 16 points and Gregory Echenique scored 15 to go with eight boards for the Bluejays (11-1), who have won five straight since falling to Boise State on Nov. 28.

"There's a lot that I didn't think we did well, but we still found a way to get a pretty significant victory," Creighton coach Greg McDerrmott said.

James Woodard had 15 points, 10 rebounds and four steals for the Golden Hurricane (6-5), who remain winless on the road this season.
