Northern Arizona vs Oregon

Oregon 83, N. Arizona 73

  •  

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Tony Woods scored 14 points, including an emphatic two-handed dunk late in the game to put Oregon up for good in an 83-73 victory against Northern Arizona on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams.

Damyean Dotson also scored 13 points for the Ducks, E.J. Singler added 12 points and eight rebounds, and Dominic Artis had 10 in the season-opener for Oregon, which sealed the win with a game-ending 16-6 run.

The Ducks, who returned only four scholarship players with game experience, started three freshmen against the Lumberjacks and played six, but it was the veterans who ignited the rally.

Oregon trailed 67-66 with 5:43 to play following back-to-back 3-pointers by NAU's Dewayne Russell and Blake Hamilton.

But Woods, a senior center, put the Ducks on top when he thundered home a dunk for a 68-67 advantage.

Singler followed with a rebound basket and Carlos Emory drained a 3-pointer as the Ducks took off on a 13-0 run that ended with a 79-67 lead.

The Lumberjacks missed eight straight shots during Oregon's run.

Russell finished with 15 points to lead NAU.
