It was a tale of two halves as Hawaii (6-3, 0-2 on the road) came shooting out the gate and kept it close with Oregon (7-2, 5-0 at home) in the first half thanks to their stellar three-point shooting. 2nd half was the Duck’s chance to counter and they capitalized. Payton Pritchard led the way with a double-double consisting of 20 points and 11 assists (season-high). Defensively, the Ducks turned it up and picked up the Warriors in the full court. Hawaii’s shooting percentage went way down (finished with 38.6% from the field) as no shots came easy for the Rainbow Warriors. They were being forced out of any sort of set and being put in an uncomfortable position on offense with only being allowed deep/contested two-pointers.

  • CJ Walker got the start today in place of Shakur Juiston due to a lower leg injury he suffered versus North Carolina. He’s listed as game-to-game.
  • Exactly as I said in the recent edition of “Talkin’ Tall Firs”, it was Eddie Stansberry doing the scoring and Drew Buggs doing the dishing. Buggs led the team with 8 assists. Stansberry finished with a game-high 24 points in the loss. The senior from San Francisco could be an early candidate for the Big West Player of the Year.
  • The duo of Will Richardson (16 points) and Addison Patterson (10 points) was a large spark off the bench for the Oregon backcourt.
  • Anthony Mathis is starting to hit from deep again (11 points on 3-4 3PT) and looking to be back to his old-self.
  • If CJ Walker can extend his range (2-3 from beyond the arc today), he would have a complete game. The freshman had a career high with 18 points on 8-10 shooting.
  • Oregon won the rebounding battle over Hawaii in a comfortable fashion, 31-19.
  • The Ducks were efficient from all three scoring options (52.9% from the field, 62.7% at the three-point line, 88.2% from the charity stripe).
  • Eddie Ionescu made his first collegiate appearance and threw an absolute dime to Addison Patterson. It runs in the family.

Oregon now has exactly a week until their next game. Their first true road test of the season is a big one. Shakur Juiston will be listed as questionable for now and will be deeply missed if he becomes unavailable for the matchup with the Michigan Wolverines. The Ducks need all the big bodies they can get down low to slow down Jon Teske.

Next Game: #13 Oregon (7-2) @ #4 Michigan (8-1, 5-0 home) – CBS at 1 PM ET on Saturday, December 14th
