Springfield, Mo. • Doug McDermott scored a season-high 39 points, including all 18 for Creighton in the first 7:12 of the second half, and the 13th-ranked Bluejays beat Missouri State 74-52 on Friday night.

McDermott, the reigning Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year, was perfect on his first 10 field goal attempts in the second half as he led the Bluejays to their 10th consecutive win.

Creighton (16-1, 5-0) led 32-27 after a sluggish first half in which Missouri State (5-12, 3-2) deliberately ran a slow, half-court offense and then took advantage when the Bluejays left an opening.

McDermott outscored Missouri State 18-5 over the first 7:12 after halftime. He shot 15 of 19 from the floor and 6 for 7 at the foul line.
