Oregon Ducks Basketball: Cougars can't overcome Ducks Home Cooking

The Ducks use a big run to get through to the next round of the NCAA tournament

Oregon got a big lift off the bench from Elgin Cook as he played in front of his home town fans in Milwaukee Thursday afternoon. Cook had a career high 23 off the bench and added 8 rebounds  for the Ducks as Oregon beat BYU for the second time this season 87-68.

Oregon did not shoot from distance very well, but they still managed to score the ball effectively from the field as well as the free throw line. Much of this game was mired down by continuous whistles which saw both teams in the bonus before the 10 minute mark in both halves.

Oregon pushed out to a 15 point lead in the first half before BYU started to chip away at the lead, eventually cutting it to 3 with 12 minutes remaining in the second half before Oregon responded and pushed their lead up to 21 as BYU was forced to resort to shooting from beyond the three point line and coming up dry.

Unlike their first meeting in Eugene, the Ducks pretty much led this game wire to wire, and will move on to the next round of the tournament to face the Wisconsin Badgers in front of what will be sure to be a raucous partisan crowd.

Wisconsin embarrassed American in the second half, winning their first game in the tournament 75-35.
