Armstead scored nine points in the final seven minutes including two free throws with 20 seconds left to seal the Oregon win. The victory was the Ducks' fourth straight win over the Trojans.
E.J. Singler added 11 points. Oregon led by as many as 15 points in the second half.
USC's Nikola Vucevic had 22 points and 15 rebounds for USC and was the only Trojan in double figures. The Trojans now also have a 13-12 record for the season and are 5-7 in Pac-10 competition.
Oregon shot 42.9 percent in 3-pointers and 41.8 percent from the field.
USC seemed to awaken when down 55-40 went on a 9-2 run capped by Maurice Jones' 3-pointer with 2:55 remaining, but could not get closer.
- Malcolm Armstead led the team in scoring for the first time this season (ninth time in his career). He reached double figures for the second straight game (fourth time in the last six games). It was the ninth time this season Armstead had 10+ points (24th time in his career).
- E.J. Singler scored in double figures for the 17th time this season (23rd on the career).
- The Ducks held the USC to 15.8 percent shooting from behind the 3-point arc. It was the lowest percentage an Oregon opponent has shot this season.
- Garrett Sim matched a season-high with six rebounds, two shy of matching his career best. It was the second time this season Sim led the Ducks in rebounding.
Ducks prevail 61-51
