Utah Valley vs Oregon

Oregon 69, Utah Valley 54

EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon coach Dana Altman was expecting more from the Ducks in their first game in six days.

''I thought we'd be sharper,'' Altman said.

So much for that idea. The Ducks used a big scoring run in each half to claim a 69-54 victory over Utah Valley on Tuesday night.

Joseph Young scored 20 points and Johnathan Loyd had 12 for the Ducks (3-0), who scored 16 straight midway through the second half to open a 20-point lead.

''We're practicing hard but our attention to detail and focus is apparently not what should be,'' Altman said. ''We have to make some steps there.''

Nearly a week after setting a Matthew Knight Arena record with a career-high 36 points in a 107-83 win against Western Carolina, Young went 8 for 15 from the field with a 3-pointer.

The junior guard came into the game leading the nation in free-throw attempts at 14 per game but went to the line just three times, making each attempt. He is now averaging 26.6 points per game.

The Ducks, who attempted 91 free throws in their first two games, went to the line just 15 times against the Wolverines (2-2), making 11.

''They just packed it in and we kind of gave into it,'' Altman said. ''We didn't swing the ball or attack. We did a little bit in the second half, but the first half, we just shot it.''

Mitch Bruneel had 15 points for Utah Valley, which was playing its second straight game against a ranked opponent after losing 93-40 to No. 8 Oklahoma State on Nov. 12.

''You have to know who you are playing and be realistic,'' Utah Valley coach Dick Hunsaker said. ''Those were two good teams.. We hope we can pull what we can from these games and improve as the season progresses.''

Hayes Garrity also scored 15 for the Wolverines, including back-to-back layups early in the second half to trim Oregon's lead to 34-31.

Up 37-33 with 15:28 to play, the Ducks took off on a 16-0 run to take a 53-33 lead with 10:30 remaining. Oregon went 6 for 10 from the field during the surge.

The Ducks shot 41.3 percent from the field, making 6 of 21 3-point attempts. They also outrebounded the Wolverines 42-30, led by Mike Moser's nine boards. Oregon also had eight blocks and eight steals.

Oregon also had a 17-0 run in the first half that made it 20-4 with 10:45 to play. Young had seven points during the stretch, making a 3-pointer and converting two steal-and-scores.

The Ducks were up 27-13 with three minutes left in the half when Utah Valley got hot. It scored 12 straight points, capped by a 3-pointer by Bruneel.

A pull-up jumper by Loyd in the final minute made it 29-25 at halftime.

The Ducks opened the game 8 for 13 from the field but made just 4 of 20 attempts the rest of the half for 36.4-percent shooting.

''There were some bright spots, but we're not taking care of the fundamentals and that's what we want to do,'' Altman said.
