Oregon blows out Willamette 100-67
EUGENE, Ore. (AP)—E.J. Singler had 18 points and 17 rebounds and five others scored in double figures for Oregon in its 100-67 victory against Willamette on Saturday night.
It was the highest-scoring game of the season for the Ducks (6-3), who got 15 points from Garrett Sim and 13 from Teondre Williams, who missed the last two games with a concussion.
Joevan Catron also scored 13 for Oregon, and Malcolm Armstead and Jay-R Strowbridge added 10 points each.
Taylor Mounts led all scorers with 23 points and nine rebounds for the Bearcats (3-6).
The matchup between the Ducks and the Division III Bearcats was a tribute to the first game played at McArthur Court, a 38-10 win for Oregon against Willamette on Jan. 14, 1927. The Ducks will play only four more games at Mac Court before moving into their new home—the $227-million, 12,500-seat Matthew Knight Arena—Jan. 13 against USC.
Oregon wore throwback uniforms to honor the 1939 “Tall Firs” team that won the first NCAA Tournament.
