Elleby scores 25, Washington State surprises No. 8 Oregon

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) After scoring a season-low in points in his last game, CJ Elleby was the go-to guy for Washington State against No. 8 Oregon.

Elleby scored 25 points and Washington State beat a Top-10 team for just the third time, surprising Oregon 72-61 on Thursday night.

Elleby, who was held to six points against Stanford, helped Washington State (11-7, 2-3 Pac-12) to its first win over a Top-10 opponent since 2007.

''I know my team trusts me to take shots,'' Elleby said. ''We knew it was going to be a fight and we had to buckle down in areas. We couldn't give them nothing easy. I think we just shot and executed really well tonight.''

Elleby shot 9 for 20, including 4 for 7 from 3-point range, and added a season-high 14 rebounds. Isaac Bonton finished with 12 points and six assists, and Jeff Pollard scored 11 for the Cougars.

''It was a really great effort for our guys. We stayed the course,'' WSU Coach Kyle Smith said. ''We knew we had to keep them out of transition. We didn't do a great job of that in the first half. We turned it over 11 times. In the second half, we didn't turn it over as much and that took a little steam out of them.''

Payton Pritchard had 22 points and five assists for Oregon (14-4, 3-2), which had its three-game winning streak halted. Chris Duarte had 15 points for the Ducks.

The Cougars were able to keep the game close in a first half that saw five lead changes by shooting 8 for 12 from beyond the arc. Oregon went on a 13-3 run at the end of the half that was capped by a step-back 3 from Pritchard to enter the break up 37-34.

Washington State started the second half quickly, going on a 11-0 run to take a 47-39 lead with 15:38 left in the second. Oregon responded with a 9-0 run of their own to tie the game at 50 with 10:15 left.

Trailing by five points with 3:24 left, Pritchard made a clutch jumper in the paint for Oregon and then converted a free throw to make it 60-58.

On the ensuing possession, Elleby converted a three-point play to make the score 63-58.

Washington State then went on a 9-0 run that closed out Oregon.

''They played better and harder than us,'' Oregon Coach Dana Altman said. ''They had way too many second chance points. They beat us in the second half off of points off turnovers and just did a lot of things better than us.

BIG PICTURE

Oregon: The heavily favored Ducks were outplayed by the Cougars and are now 4-2 in the Pac-12.

Washington State: The Cougars get a much needed victory over a heavily favored Oregon squad.

INJURIES MOUNTING

The Cougars entered the week injured, with Deion James, Marvin Cannon, and Jaylen Shead all hobbled and missing extended time. In addition, Tony Miller missed Thursday's game battling a leg injury.

PAC-12 FIRST

With another seven assists and three rebounds, Payton Pritchard will become the first player in Pac-12 history with 1,500 career points, 500 career rebounds and 600 career assists (Utah's Andre Miller also reached those career totals prior to the Utes' joining the Pac-12).
