NCAA tournament: No. 6 Creighton staves off No. 15 Princeton to advance to Elite Eight

The Cinderella run has come to an end.

No. 15 Princeton gamely battled No. 6 Creighton for the majority of their Sweet 16 matchup but the Bluejays' depth was ultimately too much for the Tigers in a 86-75 finish. Creighton will advance to face No. 5 seed San Diego State in Louisville on Sunday.

The Tigers had been one of the biggest surprises of the NCAA tournament on opening weekend, knocking out No. 2 Arizona and No. 7 Missouri to make the Sweet 16. That was where their run would end though, as the Bluejays finished with four players in double figures.
