Creighton is coming on strong just at the right time.

The No. 15 Bluejays beat UMKC 3-1 Tuesday afternoon in Kansas City to extend their winning streak to five games and unbeaten streak to eight games.

All three Bluejay scores came from seniors playing in the final regular-season week of their careers: Ryan Junge, Michael Kraus and Jarod Tarver.

Creighton, which has clinched at least a share of the Missouri Valley regular-season title, has reached the NCAA Tournament 14 straight years and played in three final fours (1996, 2000 and 2002).

The Bluejays have gone 11-1-3 since losing to Indiana and Notre Dame on the opening weekend of the season.

"It's good to see to see our team really coming into form at this point in the season," said Creighton coach Bob Warming. "We had some beautiful goals and a lot of good chances.  I thought we really had some of our best attacking play of the year today."


#2 DUKE 5 NORTH FLORIDA 0. The Blue Devils won by their largest margin of the season. Five different players scored for the Blue Devils, who won their sixth game in a row, their longest streak of the season. Graham Dugoni (red card against North Carolina) and Michael Videira (yellow-card accumulation) sat out the game.

#6 MARYLAND 4 BUCKNELL 1. Senior Pat Wilson, junior Spencer Allen and freshman Omar Gonzalez all notched their first career goals, while freshman Jeremy Hall added his sixth of the season for Maryland. The win was the 200th at Maryland for Coach Sasho Cirovski, who joins Doyle Royal, the Terps' first and longest-tenured head coach as the only two bosses to reach the 200-win plateau.

BUTLER 2 #7 INDIANA 4. The Hoosiers needed a three-goal flurry in the final six minutes to come away with the win at the Butler Bowl. Brian Ackley was the IU star with assists on Josh Tudela's tying goal and Darren Yeagle's go-ahead goal. Ackley also assisted on Indiana's first goal to give him three on the day.

#25 VIRGINIA TECH 1 APPALACHIAN STATE 0. Alexander Baden netted the game-winner in the 82nd minute on an assist from junior Ben Nason, the 24th of his career to move into second place on the Hokies' all-time assist list.
