At A Glance
- No. 15 Oregon Ducks (13-2, 2-0 Pac-12) — UO rides an 11-game winning streaking into Alaska Airlines Arena, having knocked off two unbeatens last week. The Ducks handed No. 2 UCLA and No. 22 USC their first losses of the season, edging the Bruins on Dillon Brooks’ buzzer-beating three on Wednesday, 89-87, and rolling past the Trojans two days later, 84-61, to extend their home-game winning streak to 35, the second-longest active streak in the country behind Kansas (50)… Brooks (14.8ppg), who was named the NCAA and Pac-12 Player of the Week, leads five Ducks in double-digit scoring. Chris Boucher (13.5ppg), Tyler Dorsey (12.0ppg), Dylan Ennis (11.5ppg) and Jordan Bell (10.4ppg) have also shouldered much of UO’s offense… Freshman Payton Pritchard has also had a hand in the offensive effort, playing a major role in UO’s comeback win against No. 2 UCLA, and logging a team-best 4.1 assists per game along with 7.8 points per game and 15 total steals… The Ducks are first in the nation with 116 blocks, thanks in large to Boucher (40, 11th nationally) and Bell (34, 25th nationally).

The Cougars closed the game on a 12-3 run to take the conference opener… The Huskies have underperformed so far this season with the potential No. 1 overall draft pick on their roster, Markelle Fultz. The freshman has been loading the stat sheet night after night, accounting for nearly half of UW’s scoring (45.4 percent) with 22.3 points and 6.8 assists per game… David Crisp (14.1ppg, 2.2apg), Noah Dickerson (12.5ppg, 8.7rpg) and Matisse Thybulle (10.0ppg, 2.1apg) have also contributed on the offensive side of the ball…The Huskies are fourth in the country with a 42.4 percent three-point percentage, only behind Fort Wayne (43.1), Kennesaw State (43.0) and Creighton (43.0).
