Zegarowski, Creighton beat Ohio 72-58 to reach NCAA Sweet 16

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Marcus Zegarowski and his Creighton teammates battled through a close call - along with a few jitters - to open the NCAA Tournament.

Maybe those initial struggles helped prepare them for a performance - steady, confident and playing free, as Zegarowski described it - that gave the Bluejays a breakthrough tournament win.

Zegarowski scored 20 points to help Creighton beat Ohio 72-58 on Monday, securing the program's first trip to the round of 16 in 47 years.
