Oregon Defeats Washington 81-76,Despite Season High 23 Turnovers

The #16 Fighting Ducks are on a roll with 20 in a Row in the friendly confines of Matthew Knight Arena. When you look at the final stat sheet and see a team that committed 23 turnovers they are usually on the losing end, but not Oregon. The Ducks battled to shoot 57 percent for the game to defeat the Huskies 81-76.

Oregon Freshman Dominic Artis was out with a foot injury and replaced in the lineup by Junior Johnathan Loyd. Senior EJ Singler led Oregon with 18 points and Senior Arsalan Kazemi pulled down 11 rebounds to hit a milestone 500 rebounds for his career.

It is not known when Artis will return to the lineup for the Ducks. It was not a season ending injury, so I would think we’ll know more in a few weeks.

When the latest polls are released Monday the Ducks could find themselves in the Top 10, after #1 Duke and  #3 Syracuse lost this past week. Oregon goes back on the road this week to face the Stanford Cardinal (Wednesday 8pm, ESPNU) and the Cal Bears (Saturday, 1:30 ROOT)

Oregon currently at 18-2 stand alone at the Pac 12 Standings, and have a virtual three game lead.
