Oregon Trees Cougars with Second Half Rally

The Washington State Cougars led the entire first half and roared to a ten-point lead at the break, but the Oregon Ducks came out flying in the second half to stun the Cougars 68-61 in basketball action tonight at Matthew Knight Arena.  E.J. Singler led the second half charge, scoring the Ducks’ first 10 points after the break and giving Oregon its first lead of the night.  Singler finished with a team high 19 points.

Arsalan Kazemi was all over the court helping the Ducks in clutch plays, putting up 16 points, 7 rebounds, 4 steals, and 2 assists.  Damyean Dotson also got in on the action with 11 points and 9 rebounds.  Oregon shot 43.6% from the field while holding the Cougars to just 35.7%.  The Ducks made up ground in the second half through assists and steals, ending the game with 18 assists to Washington State’s 10, and 10 steals to their 5.

Oregon remains 13-0 and unbeaten at home with an overall record of 17-2.  More importantly they also remain unbeaten in PAC-12 play at 6-0.  Oregon was able to hold the Cougars’ leading scorer, Brock Motum, to just 14 points, but did give up 19 points to Mike Ladd.

Next up, Oregon takes on Washington on January 26th in Matthew Knight Arena.
