Andrew Warren scored 23 points and Bradley beat Creighton 69-61 Tuesday to end its longest losing streak in 56 seasons.

Dyricus Simms-Edwards added 22 points for the Braves (7-16, 1-11 Missouri Valley), who ended an 11-game slide, their longest streak since dropping 14 straight in 1954-55.

Doug McDermott had 19 points and a career-high 17 rebounds for the Bluejays (14-10, 6-6), who have lost three of four and five of seven.

Tied at 56 after Creighton's Jahenns Manigat banked in a 3 with 4:06 to go, Bradley pulled ahead for good with a 7-0 run, the last five points scored by Warren. McDermott's 3 with 1:35 left made it 63-61, but the Bluejays failed to score again.


The game started four hours earlier then originally scheduled because a blizzard was expected to hit Peoria later Tuesday.
