Creighton overcame a sluggish first half to shoot better than 50 percent from the field in the second half and leave SIU Arena with a 68-51 win over Southern Illinois Saturday afternoon. Kelsey Woodard led all players with 18 points, as the Bluejay senior moved into 12th place all-time on the Creighton scoring charts.
The Bluejays are now the only remaining unbeaten Missouri Valley Conference team, at 3-0 in league play. The Jays are 9-5 overall after winning their second MVC road game in as many tries. SIU dropped to 2-13 overall and 0-4 in conference play.
