Oregon Men’s Basketball Dominates Washington in Every Aspect of the Game

Written Story by Alex Roth

The Oregon Ducks absolutely blitzed the Washington Huskies by a score of 84-56 Sunday night at Matthew Knight Arena, building up a big lead right out of the gate and never looking back. Oregon built an 8-2 lead early before 16-2 and 13-0 runs followed to put the Ducks up by 30 points in the first half. The Ducks were in control for the entire game and never took their foot off the gas, allowing for 13 different players to see the floor at some point.
The Ducks came out shooting hot with Will Richardson and De’Vion Harmon knocking down triples early, setting the tone for a hot shooting first half from Oregon. The Ducks absolutely shut down the Huskies’ offense, forcing Washington to commit more turnovers than they scored points in the first half. The Oregon Defense held the Huskies to just 13 points in the first half, which was less points than Will Richardson scored in the first half.
Oregon was firing on all cylinders offensively, shooting 54 percent from the field and 50 percent from beyond the arc, and putting up 84 points for the game. The Ducks had three different players in double figures, with Will Richardson leading the way with 21 points and Quincy Guerrier and Jacob Young also scoring over 10 points. Oregon shot 85 percent from the line is this one as well and scored 25 points off 23 Washington turnovers.
Oregon’s complete performance improves their record to 12-6 on the year with the Ducks currently being on a six-game winning streak. Oregon will look to continue its recent hot stretch of play when the Colorado Buffaloes come to Matthew Knight Arena Tuesday evening at 7p.m. That game will be televised on Pac-12 Network and you can live coverage of that on @KwvaSports on twitter.
