Eugene, Oregon - The No. 12 Oregon Ducks (17-4, 6-2) boat raced the UCLA Bruins (10-10, 3-4), winning by a score of 96 to 75 in Matt Knight Arena.

Pritchard becomes winningest player in program history during romp of UCLA.

1ST HALF: The Bruins scored the first four points of the game, but a couple of assists by junior Chris Duarte led to a 5-4 lead early in the first half. Chris Duarte scored Oregon’s next seven points, then a Payton Pritchard triple put the team up by 10 points.

Oregon was able to pull away before halftime thanks to Duarte’s 20-point first-half performance. The Ducks hit nine triples before the break and ultimately hit the locker room leading 48 to 26.

2ND HALF: The Ducks sustained a healthy double-digit lead for the entirety of the second half. Anthony Mathis hit Oregon’s only two triples in the final twenty minutes, but it didn’t seem to matter as UCLA was incapable of making up the difference. After allowing just 26 points in the first half, Altman’s squad allowed 49 in the second.

The crowd of 9,309 fans witnessed a historic night for senior Payton Pritchard who became the program’s winningest player, surpassing Jonathan Loyd’s former record of 97. Will Richardson led the Ducks in second-half scoring with nine points, finishing the game with 16 in total. Oregon snatched 15 steals and forced a season-high 23 turnovers.

The Ducks will attempt to keep up their defensive intensity when they face Cal this Thursday at Berkeley.
