The Creighton Bluejays were on fire right from the start on Monday night and the No. 4 Villanova Wildcats couldn't cool them off. Creighton ended up breaking a Big East record with 21 3-pointers in their 96-68 win over Jay Wright's Wildcats.

The unranked Bluejays started the game draining its first nine three-point attempts, seven of which were made by Ethan Wragge. A senior forward, Wragge never took a field goal attempt from inside the three-point arc, hitting nine of his 14 attempts and finishing with 27 points. Star sharpshooter Doug McDermott knocked down five of his eight attempts and finished with 23 points.

"Once I get one, they know I'm hunting for two and three," Wragge said after the game, per the Associated Press. "It's a hard feeling to describe once you get one to go in. You just kind of let it fly and don't think about it."

The 21 3-pointers Creighton made is the most in a Division I game this season, via ESPN Stats & Info.

Thankfully, Gus Johnson was there to call the game.
