Oregon Ducks head coach Kelly Graves used 13 players in a 95-55 win against Vanguard on Sunday afternoon at Matthew Knight Arena. The Ducks started the game sluggish, but like the games against San Jose St. and Hawaii, they managed to have a strong third quarter to run away with the victory. Although the win does not count towards the Ducks’ 6-1 record, Coach Graves’s squad will look to keep their momentum going before they play the Portland Pilots on Friday.

Oregon’s school record for most points scored in a single game dated back to 1970, when Oregon scored 121 against Portland. That would be until Saturday afternoon when Oregon dropped 128 against Savannah State at Matthew Knight Arena, on the way to a 69 point victory. Tyler Dorsey had a game high 29 points, and Dillon Brooks added 22. Records continued to be in danger of standing, as Payton Pritchard finished with 13 assists, tying the Matthew Knight Arena record for assists in a single game. Oregon was able to hold Savannah State (which lead the nation in 3-pointers made, with 144) to just 25.0% shooting for the game, including holding the Tigers to 11-50 from downtown. Oregon will have an entire week off before taking on Alabama on December 11th at 3pm, at Matthew Knight Arena.
