DES MOINES — Fifteen days after embarrassing Drake in Omaha, Creighton was the team that Wednesday night left the Knapp Center with red faces.
The Bulldogs, beaten by 30 on Jan. 8, built a 16-point halftime lead and turned back the 17th-ranked Bluejays' comeback attempt with clutch plays down the stretch in posting a 74-69 upset that was punctuated with Drake fans in the crowd of 6,162 storming the court in celebration.
