    OMAHA, Neb. Dede Westbrook Jersey . -- After one of the biggest wins in program history, dont expect Creighton to rest on what happened Tuesday night to get them through a trio of games in a setting where its tempting to relax.The No. 22-ranked Bluejays will face Washington State when it begins play Friday at 7:30 p.m. CDT in the Paradise Jam tournament at Sports and Fitness Center at the University of the Virgin Islands in St. Thomas.Creighton is coming off a 79-67 win over Wisconsin, giving the Badgers their first loss of the season.Win or lose, Creighton (2-0) will play either Montana or North Carolina State on Saturday. The final round of the eight-team tournament is set for Sunday.The matchup with the 2-0 Cougars will be interesting for the Jays to see how they respond to Tuesdays 79-67 win over No. 9 Wisconsin. While it would be natural for at least a bit of a letdown -- Washington State was 9-22 last season -- Creighton coach Greg McDermott anticipates the Jays will be okay.After the Wisconsin win, McDermott said that victory was the biggest in his seven-year tenure at the school.Its a step in the right direction for us, McDermott said. We think were a long way from reaching our potential, but were certainly moving in the right direction.While the starting lineup seems to have been solidified after the first two victories, McDermott has no problem with going to one of the deeper benches in the Big East Conference for help.Seniors Isaiah Zierden and Zach Hanson, along with junior Toby Hegner, all have starting experience in their careers.I think we have a very talented starting five, McDermott said. But I also am able to bring in really three former starters off the bench.To be able to bring that type of experience off the bench is a luxury not a lot of programs have. It proved to be big for us (Tuesday night) in the Wisconsin game.McDermott said he talked to many of his coaching peers, and they all told him the Paradise Jam was one of their favorite events, primarily because of the way the teams are treated, the venue and the tropical setting.Even with those pleasant distractions, McDermott has the Bluejays focused on the Cougars after they began the season with wins over Montana State (69-65) and Central Washington (81-76).Coach (Ernie) Kent obviously is doing a good job there, McDermott said. Im impressed with some of their young players. They have a focus of trying to get that basketball inside.When it goes in there, those guys know what to do with it. Its going to be a challenge for us and one that were going to take seriously.Staying strong on defense and pushing the offensive tempo more than they were able to against Wisconsin would go a long way toward letting the Jays improve to 3-0.We have to be who we are, McDermott said. We want to play as fast-paced as we possibly can while still making good decisions. Thats the trick when youre trying to play fast; you can slow down enough to make sure youre making good decisions with the basketball and taking good shots.Defensively we did a good job against Wisconsin. We forced 16 turnovers and really took them out of what they wanted to do. Thats going to have to be a staple of what we do. Brad Nortman Jersey .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final. Malik Jackson Jersey . Their experience showed Tuesday as the No. 10 Badgers blunted a Saint Louis surge to win 63-57 and advance to face West Virginia in Wednesdays finals of the Cancun Challenge. . -- Aaron Murray threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns, ran for another score, and led No. INVERNESS, Scotland -- Alex Noren held off his pursuers in the final round Sunday to win the Scottish Open by one shot for his fifth victory on the European Tour.All of Norens victories have come after he started the final round in the lead and this was another impressive display of front-running from the Swede, who shot a 2-under 70 to finish on 14-under 274.Tyrrell Hatton, Norens playing partner, was the runner-up at Castle Stuart in northern Scotland after a 69, while Nicolas Colsaerts (66), Danny Lee (69) and Matteo Manassero (70) were a further shot back.Hatton, Colsaerts, Manassero and Richie Ramsay took the final four qualification places for next weeks British Open at Royal Troon.Noren began the day with a two-shot lead, which disappeared after a bogey at No. 8 that left him tied with Lee. The 33-year-old Noren birdied Nos. 12 and 15 to go two shots in front again, and a two-putt par at the par-5 18th was enough to win.I was so nervous the whole day today, said Noren, who also led after the second round. When the game doesnt feel as goood as it looks, you just want it to be over and to come out with a win. Cam Robinson Jersey. Thats what happened.When Noren birdied the 12th, there were seven players within two shots. Yet the chasers barely made a birdie putt in the closing holes, with Colsaerts the fastest finisher by making eagle with a huge putt on No. 12 and then rolling in birdies on Nos. 13, 14, 15 and 18.I dont even want to calculate the length of putts on the back nine, the big-hitting Colsaerts said.Hatton, who was bogey-free in his final round, ended a frustrating run of five straight pars by making birdie at No. 18 to break free of a four-way tie for second. It secured his place at a fourth consecutive British Open but Hatton remains without a professional win.Americans Phil Mickelson (66), Patrick Reed (67) and Steve Stricker (67) were among the players going low in the final round, with Castle Stuart playing easier because of only light winds.
