OMAHA, Nebraska (Ticker) -- No. 13 Creighton aims for an 11th victory in 12 contests when it continues a three-game homestand against Missouri Valley Conference rival Bradley on Saturday at the Omaha Civic Auditorium.

The Bluejays (20-2, 10-1 MVC) have won four straight games since a loss at Evansville on January 15, including an 84-75 victory over Northern Iowa on Tuesday in the opener of the homestand.

Michael Lindeman scored 15 of his career-high 20 points in the second half for Creighton, which trailed by one point at halftime.

Kyle Korver chipped in 16 points and Brody Deren 10 to help the Bluejays become the first team in the nation to record 20 wins. Creighton, which leads the nation in shooting percentage (51.8 percent), is tied with Southern Illinois atop the conference standings.

Creighton, which also has winning streaks of 10 and six games, is trying to record three different five-game streaks for the first time since the 1976-77 season.

The Braves (8-13, 4-6) snapped a three-game losing streak with a 63-51 triumph over Indiana State on Wednesday.

Phillip Gilbert scored 24 points and James Gillingham added 18 as the Braves erased a four-point halftime deficit.

Bradley is 36-27 all time against Creighton, but the Bluejays have won four in a row and four straight in Omaha.
