Creighton coach Greg McDermott signals his players in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game …

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Doug McDermott scored 29 points and made five of Creighton's 15 3-pointers in the No. 21 Bluejays' 91-77 victory over Missouri State on Wednesday night.

Ethan Wragge added 15 points, Austin Chatman had 14 points and 10 assists for his first double-double, and Grant Gibbs had 10 points for the Bluejays. Creighton (19-3, 8-2) moved into a tie for first place with Wichita State in the Missouri Valley Conference.

Gavin Thurman scored 21 points to lead the Bears (6-16, 4-6), who dropped to 1-10 on the road.

McDermott, who also had 10 rebounds and four assists, got better as the game progressed. He scored 18 points and made 3 of 4 3s in the second half. The performance was still a far cry from his splendid outing in Springfield, Mo., on Jan. 11, when he personally outscored Missouri State 28-25 in the second half and made 14 shots in a row on his way to a season-best 39 points.
