ST. LOUIS -- Doug McDermott scored 23 points to become Creighton's all-time scoring leader and the top-seeded Bluejays defeated Drake 65-53 on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament.

In Saturday's semifinals, Creighton (25-7) will play No. 5 seed Indiana State, which defeated Evansville 51-50 on Friday.

Will Artino scored 14 points off the bench and Gregory Echenique had 11 points, 11 rebounds and six blocked shots for Creighton, which enjoyed a 44-26 rebounding edge. Grant Gibbs had eight of the Bluejays' 11 assists.

McDermott, a junior, now has 2,129 points -- 13 more than Rodney Buford, who played for the Bluejays from 1995-99.

Richard Carter scored 14 points and Seth VanDeest scored 13 for the ninth-seeded Bulldogs (15-17). Jordan Clarke had 10 rebounds for Drake, which reached the quarterfinal by beating Bradley on Thursday night.
