    OMAHA, Neb. -- Reserves P'Allen Stinnett and Cavel Witter fueled an 18-4 second-half run that carried Creighton to a 57-56 victory over Wichita State Saturday.

    Stinnett's driving basket with 15:21 tied the score at 31 and started a 13-0 Bluejays run. Witter added a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws during the decisive stretch, and Stinnett tallied a basket and another 3 as Creighton (9-9, 4-3 Missouri Valley) moved in front 47-35.

    The Shockers (16-3, 5-2) closed to within one on Clevin Hannah's 3-pointer with 13.1 seconds left. They knocked the ball out of bounds near midcourt with 9.4 seconds left, then failed to foul the Jays in the closing seconds.
