Beavers Fall Short in Eugene

An emotionally charged Civil War resulted in Oregon (12-4, 2-3) defeating Oregon State (7-7, 0-5), 79-68 in front of 9,087 rabid fans at McArthur court.

Both teams turned in gritty performances on the defensive side of the court during the matinee game.

Both teams started out slowly in the first half partly due to some sloppy shooting and some tenacious defense. The Beavers took an early five point lead behind the aggressive play of guard Jimmie Haywood and Philip Ricci, outscoring Oregon 12-4 during a three minute stretch.

But Oregon freshman Ian Crosswhite came off the bench to spark the Ducks to make a run of their own. In the next forty-five seconds Oregon went on an 8-0 run, backed by Crosswhite's hot shooting, to take a 22-18 lead with just over nine minutes left.

The Beavers and Ducks kept the intensity level up with tough man to man defense and every shot being contested. Haywood was very active for the Beavers deflecting a number of passes and stealing others. Ricci helped the Beavers down low with his tough, physical play.

At halftime the Ducks had a 34-31 lead and a 22-13 rebound advantage over the Beavers. Luke Jackson lead the Ducks with 10 points at the half.

The second half of the Civil War started with a bang as both teams raced up and down the court attacking each others baskets. Oregon State crept within three of Oregon before a technical foul was called on the OSU bench. Luke Ridnour hit two free throws and gave the Ducks a five point lead.

On the next play, OSU freshman Lamar Hurd got fouled and made a left handed acrobatic, scoop shot to bring the Beaver within two. At 17:30 the Beavers tied the game at 40, but could did get the chance to take the lead in the second half.

Ridnour came alive for the Ducks as he hit numerous jump shots to keep the Beavers at bay. McArthur court went wild as the Ducks surged to a 55-48 lead and held the Beavers scoreless for over four minutes.

Two Ridnour free throws at 7:07 pushed the lead to double digits for the first time in the game. The Beavers would get no closer than nine points the rest of the game.

The Ducks ended up victorious and defeated the Beavers for the eighth time in a row.
