By The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) ' Doug McDermott had 33 points and Antoine Young scored eight of his 14 in overtime as No. 25 Creighton survived an upset bid in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament final with an 83-79 victory over Illinois State on Sunday.

Grant Gibbs added a career-high 20 points for second-seeded Creighton (28-5), which won the conference tournament for the seventh time in 14 seasons and earned its first NCAA bid since 2007.

The Bluejays were 3-0 against fourth-seeded Illinois State (20-13), which beat top-seeded and 15th-ranked Wichita State in the semifinals, the first two wins by nine and 28 points.



Freshman Nic Moore had 20 points for Illinois State and drove the length of the court for a layup with 6.5 seconds to go in regulation that forced overtime. Young tried to duplicate that feat on the other end but missed with 2 seconds left and Gregory Echenique missed a tip-in at the buzzer.
