OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - All-American Doug McDermott is the undisputed star for Creighton. He's not a one-man show, though.
The 16th-ranked Bluejays have used consummate team efforts to start 13-1 and win their first two Missouri Valley Conference games.
In Creighton's hard-earned 79-72 victory over Illinois State on Wednesday, the Redbirds did all they could to neutralize McDermott at the expense of leaving Grant Gibbs unguarded. McDermott still scored 15 points, but he had only four at halftime.
Gibbs made the Redbirds pay, scoring 12 of his 16 points in the first half of one of his best games of the season. When Gibbs wasn't roaming free, Ethan Wragge was knocking down one of his six 3-pointers.
Indiana State (9-4), which has won its first two conference games for the first time in five seasons, visits the Bluejays on Saturday.
