Creighton apparently has Villanova's number.

Doug McDermott scored 39 points, and the No. 18 Bluejays won 101-80 on Sunday in Omaha, Neb., to move into first place in the Big East, a half-game ahead of the No. 6 Wildcats.

Creighton's 21-point victory came less than a month after a 28-point drubbing of Villanova in Philadelphia.

"I didn't think we could play much better than we did at Villanova," Creighton coach Greg McDermott said. "But I'm not sure we didn't play better today."

The Bluejays (21-4, 11-2) shot a season-best 64.2 percent. Their previous high was 56.9 percent in the 96-68 win at Villanova on Jan. 20, when they made 21 shots from 3-point range.
