Ducks Ousted from Tournament

Oregon's most frustrating men's basketball season ended on Wednesday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles when the Ducks lost to Washington State 62-40. The Cougars jumped out and never trailed in the first round of the Pac-10 Tournament.

Aron Baynes led WSU with 20 points, with 14 in the first half alone. Baynes was 7-of-8 from the field, 6-of-6 from the foul line and grabbed eight rebounds.

Tajuan Porter paced Oregon with 20 points. Oregon set records including an all-time low of fewest points, lowest number of field goals and lowest field goal percentage at 26 percent. Ironically two years ago Porter was the Tournament's Most Outstanding Player when Oregon won the three-day event.
