Ducks Take Stanford 68-64

It took the Oregon Ducks (19-8, 10-5) nearly the whole game to get the lead, but behind some hot shooting by E.J. Singler and a stingy defense, the Oregon Ducks over came the Stanford Cardinal 68-64. Singler ended the contest with 20 points, five rebounds and three assists.

E.J. Singler's 20 points was the eighth time this season he's gone over the 20-point mark and was aided in the Oregon cause by Olu Ashaolu with 14 points.

With the win, the Ducks now are tied fourth spot with Arizona in the Pac-12 Conference Tournament seeding at 10-5 and if Oregon can hold onto the seeding, it would mean that they would have a bye on the first day of the Pac-12 Tournament.

Josh Owens had 20 points while Dwight Powell chipped in 11 for Stanford (18-9, 8-7). The Cardinal was held scoreless in the last 3:45 after taking a 64-61 lead on Owens' dunk.
