    EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- Kenny Lawson posted his second straight double-double to help Creighton fight off Evansville 72-64 Sunday.

    Lawson had 18 points and 11 rebounds as the Bluejays (6-8, 1-2 Missouri Valley) picked up their first road victory. Justin Carter scored 14 and Cavel Witter 12, Lawson blocked a career-high seven shots and P'Allen Stinnett made the 100th 3-pointer of his career.

    Evansville freshman Colt Ryan rebounded from a scoreless game Friday at Northern Iowa to explode for 26 points, including 6 of 11 on 3-pointers. Denver Holmes added 10 points for the Purple Aces (6-7, 0-3).

    Creighton led by 14 before Evansville trimmed it to 56-50. Then Ryan hit a 2-pointer and a pair of 3-pointers to put the Purple Aces ahead 58-56 with 7:36 to go.

    But Lawson broke a 60-60 tie on a three-point play with 4:57 to go as part of Creighton's 16-4 run to finish the game.
