Ducks pick up 10th win in blowout of Houston Baptist

Oregon could have gone scoreless in the second half and still came away with the win.

By halftime the Ducks led Houston Baptist 51-30, and they would go on to win 91-50 on Saturday at Matthew Knight Arena to improve to 10-2 on the year with just one game remaining on their non-conference schedule.

Oregon shot nearly 50 percent from the field and was lethal from beyond the arc, shooting 56.3 percent as a team from deep. The Ducks’ second-best offensive output of the year came thanks to very balanced scoring with four players in double figures and three more with at least eight points.

E.J. Singler@@ returned to form after he was held to just two points in the Ducks’ loss to UTEP earlier in the week. He scored 13 points on 5-0f-6 shooting, including three makes on four, three-point shots.

The Ducks round out their non-conference play against Nevada on Dec. 31 before opening conference play on the road in Corvallis.
