Honoring the tradition of senior night, Frantz Dorsainvil got things started by winning the tip for Oregon.
The Ducks played a trapping defense that pressured the Beavers and made from some unusual match-ups. Yes, that's Porter taking on OSU's Schaftenaar.
The Beavers had several easy lay-ups early, but Humprhey denied OSU's Rickey Claitt with this block in the first half.
Things looked bleak at times in the first half - despite shooting well overall (50%), from three (71%) and from the FT line (87%), the Ducks gave up too many easy baskets, like this dunk.
The Ducks had great energy all night long and displayed intense emotion throughout the game. Here Josh Crittle can't believe the call went against him.
Coach Kent matched his team's intensity the entire night and he clearly said something to inspire his young Ducks in the second half, as they overcame a 14 point deficit with 18:20 left in the game.
LeKendric Longmire was active in the lane, driving and slashing for 13 points.
The Duck defense was all over the floor in the second half. Humphrey thought he caused a turnover and turned to the ref as if to say "that's not our ball?"
This was Matthew Humphrey's coming out party, as he hit for a career high 17 - here he nails one of his four three-pointers to put the Ducks up 8 with 10 minutes to go.
The Ducks put Porter at the point and pushed it against the Beaver press. His quickness left the Beavs chasing him for most of the second half. Who knew? Coach Kent with a brilliant coaching move!
Michael Dunigan brought the crowd to their feet with this Dunk to put Oregon up by six.
Crittle threw down over Calvin Haynes and the Pit was rocking, sensing a Civil War win...
When it was all over, Coach Robinson and Coach Kent exhanged a hug knowing they might meet again in the Pac-10 tournament.
It was a sight not often seen in Mac Court this year. Ducks win. Ducks win.
