Creighton wins the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament, headed to 2012 NCAA Tournament

It was one wild, hard fought championship game in the Missouri Valley Tournament in St. Louis in which the Creighton Bluejays and the Illinois State Redbirds fought tooth and nail, but it was the Blue Jays that came out on top 83-79 in overtime. Creighton was led as always by MVC Player of the Year Doug McDermott, who led the club with 33 points as the Redbirds seemingly had no way to slow him down.

They take the automatic bid from the MVC to get into March Madness, their first tournament appearance since 2007, but they were going to get a bid regardless while Illinois State is not so that means that teams on the bubble will breath a collective sigh of relief.

Tim Brando and Mike Gminski were on the call at the Scottrade Center and here's the game recap.
