DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Richard Carter scored 20 points and Drake stunned No. 17 Creighton 74-69 on Wednesday night, handing the Bluejays their first consecutive losses of the season.

Ben Simons added 13 for the Bulldogs (9-10, 3-5 Missouri Valley Conference), who blew a 16-point lead before rallying for their first win over a ranked opponent in five years.

Grant Gibbs brought Creighton within 71-69 with 32 seconds left, and the Bluejays got the ball back on a steal. But Gibbs missed a layup and Simons sealed the win with a steal and two free throws with 0.5 seconds left.

Doug McDermott had 19 points to lead Creighton, which shot just 24 percent from 3-point range. But McDermott had just two points in the second half and didn't touch the ball on Creighton's last two possessions.
