Oregon's win improves its all-time NCAA Tournament record to 13-9 and the win on Thursday afternoon is the Ducks' first since beating UNLV in the 2007 Sweet Sixteen.
The win also moved the 2012-13 team to third place on the University's single-season win record with a 27-8 record passing the 2001-02 (26-9).
Oregon is now 2-0 all-time against Oklahoma State.
Arsalan Kazemi pulled down 17 rebounds to go along with his 11 points and that is the 55th double-double in his career. Kazemi's 17 rebounds is also an Oregon single game record in NCAA Tournament competition.
Oregon legend Aaron Brooks (1,511 points) was passed in scoring today by E.J. Singler who scored eight against OSU and now has 1,517 points for his career. Singler has also moved up to 13th place in the all-time scoring list for brothers (along with former Duke player Kyle now with the Detroit Pistons). The Singler brothers have a total of 3,924 points surpassing Jason and Ryan Thompson who scored 3,919 points.
Freshman guard Dominic Artis only played 17 minutes today and scored 13 points and he also had four steals, which ties Fred Jones' Oregon single-game record set on March 24, 2002 against Kansas.
