The Oregon Ducks beat the Arkansas State Red Wolves in their final game of the Global Sports Shootout, 91-68, Thursday afternoon.

Dwayne Benjamin finished the game with 25 points and six rebounds. Elgin Cook scored 13 points and is the only Duck to score double figures in every game this season. Chris Boucher set a new single game record with nine blocks this afternoon.

Oregon took an early lead by going on an early 15-6 run. Benjamin scored 11 first half points and provided some energy from the bench. The Ducks built a 13 point lead at the half by contesting shots. Arkansas State shot 27.3 percent from the field in the first half.

Arkansas State struggled stopping Tyler Dorsey. The freshman finished with 15 points and six rebounds. Oregon struggled at the free throw line, shooting 27-40 from the line. The Ducks tried to take advantage of every possession and only turned the ball over 10 times.

Oregon settled down defensively in the second half and their defense helped pull them away. Arkansas State couldn't compete with the Ducks in the post. The Red Wolves had no answer for Oregon's interior defense. Oregon forced 21 turnovers and scored a bunch of points in transition.

The Red Wolves were led by Devin Carter who had 22 points and six rebounds.

The Ducks will host Fresno State on Monday at 5 p.m. on the Pac-12 Networks. This will be the final home game before Oregon travels to Las Vegas to play UNLV. UNLV shocked No. 13 Indiana tonight, 72-69.
