BROOKINGS, S.D. - Lauren Jensen scored 17 of her 30 points in the fourth quarter and No. 21 Creighton pulled away from No. 23 South Dakota State.

Ellie Colbeck drilled a 3-pointer for the Jackrabbits to tie the game but after a two-minute scoreless drought Emma Ronsieke made a layup for Creighton and Jensen scored the next seven points for a 73-64 lead heading into the final minute.

Creighton, the surprise team of the NCAA Tournament last year when they beat Kentucky as well as No. 8 Iowa and No. 10 Iowa State, made 10 of 12 free throws in the fourth quarter.

Morgan Maley added 13 points for the Bluejays, who shot 50% for the game.

Myah Selland scored 22 points to lead South Dakota State, which won the WNIT last season. The Jackrabbits led 25-16 early in the second quarter but then missed their next five shots and never got back to 50% while finishing 5 of 21 from 3-point range.
