Oregon glides past Arizona 92-74Posted: Updated:
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Nia Jackson led six Oregon players in double figures with 18 points as the Ducks beat Arizona 92-74 on Thursday night.
Taylor Lilley had 15 points, a career-high nine assists and set the Oregon single-season record for 3-pointers, going 3-for-8 from behind the line to bring her season total to 83.
Nicole Canepa also scored 15 off the bench for the Ducks (15-8, 6-5 Pac-10), Amanda Johnson had 13 points and 14 rebounds, Victoria Kenyon added 13 points and Jasmin Holliday scored 11.
The last time the teams played - on Jan. 16 in Tucson, Ariz. - they set a Pac-10 record for points scored in a game and the Wildcats (11-11, 5-7) won 119-112.
But on Thursday, Arizona shot just 37 percent from the field and made only 4-of-21 3-point tries. They were also outrebounded 53-44 and had 19 turnovers.
Soana Lucet led Arizona with 23 points and Ify Ibekwe had 11 points and 12 rebounds.
Kenyon, who was suspended for the first game against the Wildcats, scored 11 in the final 7:09 of the first half to help the Ducks rally from a five-point deficit to lead 44-38 by halftime.
Trailing 29-24, Kenyon hit a 3-pointer and jumper on consecutive possessions to spark the Ducks. She then gave them the lead for good with a 3-pointer with 5:42 to play in the half to make it 34-31.
A 12-2 run early in the second half pushed the Ducks lead to 62-47. Canepa scored eight during that stretch and had all of her points in the second half on 7-of-9 shooting.
Canepa scored inside with 8:02 to play to make it 77-54 - the Ducks' largest lead of the game.
