Oregon scores the most it ever has in a game.

EUGENE, ORE. -- Tyler Dorsey's 29 points were too much to handle for the Savannah State Tigers, as they were routed 128-59.  The win marked the most points ever scored in a Men’s basketball game in Oregon history. Dorsey’s performance led six of his teammates who also score in double-figures.

Dorsey led all scorers with 29 points shooting 12-16 from the field and 5-8 from 3-point territory while adding six rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes of play.

Dillon Brooks was able to feed off of Dorsey as he was able to knock down 22 points on 8-12 shooting from the field while collecting two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 13 minutes of play. 

 “It’s a very fun style of play, especially when your point guards are feeding you the ball.” Brooks commenting on the team's ball movement. “It’s a great style of plan and we need to get back to that.”

 Oregon had five other players reach double-digit figures with freshman Keith Smith leading the way with 15 points, Chris Boucher and Roman Sorkin each had 12 points while Kavell Bigby-Williams and Dylan Ennis had 11 each. 

Payton Pritchard had a quiet night totaling five points, six rebounds but handed out 13 assists.

“We took better shots.” Pritchard said. “That’s why our assists were high and we were making shots.”

Oregon shot 54-90 from the field, 12-35 from the 3-point line and 8-11 from the free throw. 

 Oregon’s 128 points is a new school and team record that was set back in 1970 when the Ducks scored 121 points against Portland. 

The Ducks also set a new record for Matthew Knight Arena with the 128 points while beating the previous record of 108 which was set back in 2012 when the Oreon beat Iowa 108-97.

Rebounding was all Oregon as the Ducks ended up out rebounding the Tigers, 67-29 and Oregon also had 12 blocked shots, as Bigby-Williams led that statistical category with three rejections.

Savannah State was led by Sophomore guard Dexter, McClanahan who racked up 13 points on 3-10 shooting. McClanahan also had two rebounds and one assist. 

Teammate Troyce Manassa contributed 10 points while gathering three rebounds, one assist and two steals.
