Doug McDermott scored 25 points, including nine during a decisive 12-0 run, and No. 21 Creighton overcame poor 3-point shooting in the first half to defeat Bradley 75-58 on Saturday.

The Bluejays (20-3, 9-2 Missouri Valley Conference) beat Bradley for the 15th straight time at home and have won 20 games for the 14th time in 15 seasons.

Bradley (13-10, 5-6) lost its fifth straight road game and eighth in a row against a ranked opponent.

Austin Chatman, who had 16 points, drilled a 3-pointer after Bradley had closed to 53-48. Then McDermott went to work, hitting a 3, a layup and four straight free throws to make it 65-48 with 5 minutes to play.
