The Oregon Ducks lost to the UTEP Miners 91-84 Wednesday night in a triple-overtime thriller.
The main downfall of the Ducks was their porous free throw shooting, going just 14-27 from the line. Oregon also allowed UTEP to receive 41 chances from the free throw line, with the Miners making 30 of those. Both teams struggled to find the flow in the first and second overtimes. There was poor time management by both teams, taking low percentage shots when the game was on the line.
In the third overtime UTEP hit two 3-pointers, one from their center John Bohannon to put the game out of reach. Julian Washburn led UTEP with 23 points, and Bohannon adding 21. Oregon again had five players scoring double digits with Damyean Dotson leading the way with 20 points, and Carlos Emory adding another 18 points respectively, while senior E.J. Singler only added 2 points and fouled out in the 4th quarter.
Next up, Oregon takes on the Houston Baptist Huskies on December 22nd at 12pm PST.
