EUGENE, Oregon — The No. 13 Oregon Ducks embarrassed Oregon State, 85-43, in the Civil War on Saturday night from Matthew Knight Arena. With the home victory, Oregon extended their school-record home win-streak to 36 games.
Oregon has now won 14 straight games. They have not lost since the Maui Invite against Georgetown.
The Ducks imposed their will against Oregon State, and then some. If a good start is any indication of your success, then the Ducks opening the game on a 21-0 run removed all hope from OSU. The Beavers did not score their first points until midway through the first half.
If the Oregon basketball team is paying back every team that defeated the Duck football squad this past season, consider yourself warned. Thus far, the men’s basketball team has dismantled USC, Washington, and Washington State. And now, add the Beavers to that list.
Should this trend continue, California comes to town in a few days.
Dillon Brooks, Payton Pritchard, Tyler Dorsey, Dylan Ennis, and Jordan Bell drew the start on Saturday night. Chris Boucher occupied the sixth man role.
Everyone was scoring at-will for the Ducks on Saturday.
The true freshman continues to impress. Pritchard scored a team-high 17 points. The Oregon boy made five of his nine shots from the floor, including all four attempts from deep. His shooting was bringing down the house, and the Duck bench.
Ennis was second in command with 16 points. He added four rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block.
Brooks manufactured 11 points on a low-scoring night. The midseason All-American added five dimes, two boards, one steal, and a block. Oregon spread the wealth on Saturday.
Bell was a defensive juggernaut with four stolen passes, four blocked shots, and nine rebounds. He added six thunderous points, as well.
All 10 players in Dana Altman’s rotation scored in the Civil War game. Casey Benson led the bench mob with 11 points.
Boucher chipped in with eight points and three blocked shots.
The Ducks were scorching the nets from deep. Oregon made 11 of 23 attempts (47.8) from downtown. The Ducks made 27 of 52 shots from the floor (51.9).
OSU was held to 16.7 percent from 3-point territory. The Beavers turned the ball over 21 times to the Ducks’ 11 turnovers.
Next up for No. 13 Oregon (16-2, 5-0 Pac-12) is a defensive-minded Cal team (13-5, 4-2 Pac-12) at MKA on Thursday night. Tip is set for 6:00 p.m. PCT. Oregon is currently 11-0 at home this season, but will receive a stern test from the Bears.
