Recap: Bradley vs. Creighton

Peoria, IL (Sports Network) - Doug McDermott finished with 32 points and 11 rebounds as the Creighton Bluejays coasted to an 80-62 decision over the Bradley Braves in a Missouri Valley Conference tilt Carver Arena.

McDermott went 12-of-17 from the field for Creighton (23-7, 12-5 MVC), which will have a chance to claim its first outright MVC regular-season title since the 2001-02 campaign on Saturday when it squares off with Wichita State.

Walt Lemon, Jr. paced Bradley (16-14, 7-10) with 17 points in the setback. Will Egolf chimed in with 11 points.
