Creighton men’s basketball picked up an 88-51 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Tuesday night before 16,303 at CenturyLink Center Omaha. The Bluejays never trailed in the game, improving to 8-2 on the season.
Arkansas-Pine Bluff (2-8) lost its eighth straight game since a 2-0 start, and the Golden Lions won’t play at home until January 18th after 15 straight games away from home to start the campaign.
Senior All-American Doug McDermott led all players with 25 points and nine rebounds in just 29 minutes. McDermott has scored 189 points in 185 minutes during his last six home games dating to late last season. McDermott’s now made 29 straight free throws, the fourth-longest streak on record in CU history. He joined Doug Brookins (16-16), Mike Caruso (14-14) and Bob Portman (13-13) as the program’s only players with 13 or more free throws and no misses in a game, becoming the first guy to do so since Brookins in 1974.
