DUCKS 98 - HORNETS 59

The #6 Oregon Ducks (11-2, 8-0 Home) defeated the Alabama State Hornets (1-12, 0-9 Away) by a score of 98 to 59 at Matt Knight Arena in their final non-conference game of the season. Junior Chris Duarte scored a career-high 31 points and hit six three-pointers.

After a block by Francis Okoro and a Payton Pritchard triple to kickoff the game, Oregon went on a 19-4 run and never looked back. A couple of three-pointers by Duarte closed out the first half and the Ducks doubled the Hornets halftime score, 48 to 24. The home team hit six triples and shot 57% from the floor before the half, while the Hornets shot 29% during this stretch and committed 12 turnovers.

Oregon scored the first 11 points of the second half which basically doomed Alabama State to their 12th loss of the season. The Duck bench had great success against the outmatched Hornets, tallying 37 points. Freshman Addison Patterson and sophomore Will Richardson were particularly effective coming off the pine, combining for 22 points.

PAC-12 play will kick into gear for the Ducks this Thursday against the Colorado Buffaloes. Oregon is riding a five-game win streak and hope to live up to their preseason hype as the favorites to win the conference.
