After dispatching the Missouri Tigers Thursday night, Creighton traveled north on I-29 for a Sunday showdown at South Dakota State.
The Jackrabbits finished the first half in a flurry and then held the Bluejays in check, winning 62-51.
Sarah Nelson got her team going early, as the Jays led 25-13 with 6:53 remaining in the first half. SDSU then held CU scoreless the remainder of the half, going on a 13-0 run and taking a one-point lead to the break.
The Jackrabbits controlled the paint, outscoring Creighton 16-6 inside after 20-minutes. They also led in points off turnovers (7-4), second chance (4-0) and on the break (8-0).
South Dakota State continued their run in the second half, scoring the first 15 points before Creighton scored with 15:26 left. SDSU led by as many as 19 points before a frantic run took place in the final 7:38.
Down by 11 with 1:11 was as close as the Jays got before time expired on the 2013-14 season. Nelson finished with a team-high 15 points and nine rebounds. Marissa Janning also finished in double figures with 11 points with six boards.
Lauren Works and Alexis Akin-Otiko each scored six, while Jordan Garrison five. McKenzie Fujan and Brianna Rollerson rounded out the offense with four apiece.
Creighton ends the season 20-14 having won 20 games for sixth time in the last seven seasons, dating back to 2007-08. It's also the eighth 20-win campaign under head coach Jim Flanery since taking over in 2002.
