    OMAHA, Neb. -- Kenny Lawson Jr. had career highs with 30 points and 18 rebounds as Creighton beat Saint Joseph's 82-75 Saturday night.

    Lawson was 11 of 17 from the field, including 1 of 3 from 3-point range, and added seven free throws in eight trips to the line. Ethan Wragge added a career-high 22 points for the Bluejays (5-4), who snapped a three-game losing streak. Antoine Young had 17 points and five assists.

    Carl Jones scored 17 points, Justin Crosgile 15 and Langston Galloway 13 for Saint Joseph's (3-7), which lost its fifth straight.

    The Hawks led early, going on top 30-18 with 6:30 left in the first half. But Lawson responded with five straight points to spark a 20-6 run that put Creighton on top 38-36 at halftime.

    The Bluejays trailed 42-40 four minutes into the second half before draining 3-pointers on six straight possessions -- five from Wragge -- to take a 58-50 lead.
