OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Doug McDermott scored 32 points - 11 during a 14-2 run after DePaul pulled within a point in the second half - and No. 12 Creighton beat the Blue Demons 78-66 on Friday night.

The Bluejays (19-3, 9-1 Big East) have won 14 of their last 15 games. DePaul (10-14, 2-9) has lost six in a row.

DePaul trailed by 14 in the first half, but closed to 59-58 after dominating the boards early in the second half. McDermott was 9 of 21 from the field and made 13 of 14 free throws, including 9 of 10 in the last 7 minutes as the Bluejays pulled away. DePaul managed only three field goals in the last 7½ minutes.

Austin Chatman added 11 points for the Bluejays. McDermott grabbed nine rebounds to go over 1,000 for his career.

Brandon Young had 16 points and Forrest Robinson added 11 for the Blue Demons, who held a 41-31 advantage on the boards. R.J. Currington was held to two points after scoring in double figures in three straight games.
