Pritchard scores 20 as Oregon beats Stanford 69-46
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Stanford knew exactly who the masked man was at the center of Oregon's defense.
Yet it still didn't matter, as Kenny Wooten blocked more shots than the Cardinal made for most of the first half.
"We were very clear on who he was and what he did," Stanford coach Jerod Haase said, "but we didn't execute the game plan very well."
Pritchard scores 20, Oregon hands Cal 11th straight loss
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — For one game at least, all was well in the basketball world for Oregon's Payton Pritchard.
The result was the second career double-double for the last remaining Duck from the Final Four run two years ago.
Pritchard had 20 points and a career-high 10 rebounds to help Oregon outlast California 73-62 on Wednesday night.
Louis King added 12 points and Paul White and Kenny Wooten each had 11 for the Ducks (14-9, 5-5 Pac-12). Freshman Will Richardson had a season-high nine assists.
King, Wooten lead Oregon past Washington State 78-58
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A timely chalk talk with Bill Walton inspired Oregon's Kenny Wooten to check out the Hall of Famer's moves.
The video session then played a part in Wooten's best offensive game of the season for the struggling Ducks.
Louis King scored 13 of his 22 points in the second half and Wooten matched his career high with 20 to help Oregon rally past Washington State 78-58 on Sunday night.
Balanced Sun Devils use big outburst to beat Ducks 78-64
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State ran away from Oregon with a 19-0 second-half run, and the unquestioned highlight was a monster dunk by Zylan Cheatham over the Ducks' Kenny Wooten.
"He's an elite shot-blocker," Cheatham said, "so I wasn't going to be on the other side of SportsCenter. It was pretty much him or me when I got him in the air and I won this battle."
It was, Arizona State coach Bobby Hurley said, a "statement-type" play in the 78-64 Sun Devils victory.
King, White help Oregon snap skid, beat USC 81-60
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon's defensive benchmark for success is to hold its opponent to fewer than 70 points.
It also doesn't hurt when the Ducks produce their most efficient offensive game of the season, either.
Paul White and Louis King each scored 19 points as Oregon raced past Southern California 81-60 on Sunday night.
The Ducks scored on 35 of 62 possessions and shot 29 of 52 (55.8 percent), only the third time in 16 games they've made more than half their shots and the first in eight games.
