KOBE Paras made his first basket in the NCAA as the Creighton Bluejays remained unbeaten with a 103-74 rout of the Washington State Cougars on Friday (Saturday, Manila time).

The Filipino forward finally made his first field goal in two appearances for the Bluejays, holding his nerve as he missed his first attempts in the Paradise Jam Tournament.

The 6-foot-7 Paras hit a jumper in the second half that stretched the Bluejays lead to 30 points, 85-55.
