Oregon had built a 19-point lead in the first half but by the time halftime rolled around that lead had been cut to four, 40-36. In the second half, the Wolves tied the game at 40 all at the 18:54 mark but after that Oregon wore WOU down until 12:41 left in the game and the Ducks up by 10, 55-45. From that point Oregon put more pressure on, and ran away with the game.

Oregon out-rebounded WOU 49-26 with Jordan Bell hauling in nine boards, while Dorsey and Brooks had eight each and Cook finishing with seven.

For the game the Ducks shot 59.3 percent from the floor on 32-of-54 shooting including 3-of-11 in 3-point shots and were 21-of-31 from the free throw line.

WOU shot 31.1 percent in field goal shooting on 23-of-74 shooting including 10-of-30 in 3-pointers. They were also 4-of-10 in free throws. Alex Roth had 13 while Jordan Wiley and Andy Avgi had 11 each.

Dylan Ennis made his first appearance of the season for the Ducks playing 10 minutes. This was the first game in an Oregon uniform Ennis has played since being slowed by an injury just before the season started.

Oregon is now 11-2 for the year.

Next up for the Ducks is the start of Pac-12 Conference play when they travel to Corvallis to take on the Oregon State Beavers on January 3, with tipoff scheduled for 4 p.m. (Pacific) and will be carried on Fox Sports 1.
