Drake makes second-half comeback to beat Creighton
OMAHA, Neb. (AP)—Drake found its shooting touch on Saturday, snapping a three-game losing streak with a 74-62 road win over Creighton.
The Bulldogs (14-7, 5-4), which have made just 36.4 percent of their shots in blowout losses to Northern Iowa and Missouri State, hit 12 of their first 18 field-goal attempts to rally from a 6-point halftime deficit.
Craig Stanley and Josh Young led four Drake players in double figures with 16 points each. But it was three straight baskets by Jonathan Cox early in the second half that began the Bulldog surge.
Drake, which also got a career-high 15 points from reserve John Michael Hall, outscored Creighton (15-5, 5-4) 24-7 over a 10-minute stretch in the second to lead by 14. The Bulldogs has trailed by 9 early in the game.
While Drake was heating up from the floor, Creighton was only 9 for 40 from the field after halftime, including 4 for 21 from outside of the arc.
