Omaha, NE (SportsNetwork.com) - Doug McDermott finished with 33 points as the Creighton Bluejays rolled over the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 82-67, in a non- conference bout at the CenturyLink Center Omaha.

Shavon Shields netted 22 points and Terran Petteway put in 21 for Nebraska (6-3). Petteway and Creighton's Grant Gibbs were ejected from the game late in the second half after being called for double-flagrant fouls.

The Bluejays ran out to a 51-25 lead at halftime after hitting 54.8 percent of their field goal tries, including 7-of-16 from 3-point range, in the first half. Nebraska connected on only 30 percent from the field while making good on just one of its 12 attempts from 3-point distance.
