Christian Bishop scored 18 points to lead six Creighton players in double figures and the ninth-ranked Bluejays routed Omaha 94-67.

The Bluejays came out much sharper than in their opener against North Dakota State on Sunday. They shot 61% while bolting to a 50-26 halftime lead.

Big East preseason player of the year Marcus Zegarowski made back-to-back 3-pointers near the end of a 27-3 run that broke open the game early. Denzel Mahoney, who sat out the opener because of COVID-19 issues, hit a 3 for Creighton’s first basket and finished with 17 points.

Marlon Ruffin scored 14 of his 18 points in the second half to lead the Mavericks.
