DES MOINES, Iowa (Ticker) -- Kyle Korver had an off night, but Larry House picked up the slack with 23 points to help No. 15 Creighton earn an 88-68 Missouri Valley Conference victory over Drake.
Korver, who is eighth on Creighton's all-time scoring list with 1,571 points, scored six, his second-lowest total of the season. He shot just 1-of-4 from the field.
Korver, an Iowa native, was double-teamed constantly and collected eight assists, seven rebounds and three steals.
House took over the shooting responsibilities to help the Bluejays (19-2, 9-1 MVC) overcome a slow start and earn their third straight victory. House shot 11-of-15 from the field to tie his season high in points.
The Bluejays shot 67 percent (18-of-27) from the field in the second half and 61 percent (8-of-18) on 3-pointers. Creighton's hot shooting overcame a Drake attack that shot 55 percent (28-of-51).
House was one of five Bluejays to score in double figures, including reserve DeAnthony Bowden, who had a season-high 17. Brody Deren and reserve Mike Grimes each added 11 points.
The game drew 7,152 fans to the Knapp Center, a school record for Drake. However, many of the fans made the trek from Omaha to watch the Bluejays, who have four starters who hail from the Hawkeye state.
Drake (7-13, 2-7) led early, but Creighton never trailed after House hit a 3-pointer midway through the first half to give the Bluejays a 23-21 lead.
Creighton led 44-38 at halftime and scored eight of the first 12 points after the break. The Bluejays put the game away with a 14-2 run early in the second half that gave them a 71-57 advantage.
Greg Danielson led the Bulldogs with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Luke McDonald and J.J. Sola added 16 points apiece as Drake suffered its ninth loss in 11 games.
Creighton remained tied atop the MVC standings with Southern Illinois, which scored an impressive 94-59 victory at Wichita State on Saturday. Southwest Missouri State is one-half game behind the co-leaders at 8-1 in conference play.
Creighton has won 11 of its last 14 games against Drake and leads the all-time series, 78-51.
Korver's worst game of the season was in Creighton's loss at Evansville on January 23 when he scored five points on 1-of-12 shooting. It was the only game this season in which the senior has failed to make a 3-pointer.
