NORMAL, Ill. — Creighton found itself in an unaccustomed spot during the second half of Wednesday’s game against Illinois State.
For the first time since Nov. 28, the Bluejays were behind in the final 20 minutes. The Redbirds twice grabbed slim leads only to see No. 16 Creighton come up with clutch plays down the stretch in pulling out a 79-72 Missouri Valley win.
