Zegarowski can't miss, No. 15 Creighton routs No. 21 Butler

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Butler paid a heavy price for leaving Marcus Zegarowski open.

Zegarowski made all seven of his 3-pointers and finished with 25 points, and No. 15 Creighton beat the 21st-ranked Bulldogs 81-59 on Sunday for its fourth straight win over an AP Top 25 opponent.

The Bluejays (22-6, 11-4 Big East) have won nine of 10 and remain one game behind conference-leading Seton Hall.
