Nov. 24, 2012 at 1:14 AM

LAS VEGAS, Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Ethan Wragge put Creighton ahead to stay with 7:44 remaining Friday and the No. 12 Bluejays went on to defeat Wisconsin 84-74.

The victory put Creighton in the championship game of the Las Vegas Invitational against Arizona State, which produced an 83-68 win over Arkansas in the other semifinal contest.

Wisconsin held a one-point halftime lead and the Badgers were ahead by two as the game entered its final 8 minutes.

Wragge, however, hit a 3-pointer to boost the Bluejays in front and they led by as many as 12 points down the stretch.

Doug McDermott made only 10-of-23 shots but scored 30 points for Creighton, which improved to 5-0. Wragge had 17 points off the bench.

Wisconsin (3-2) was led by Jared Berggren with 27 points and seven rebounds.
