Eugene, Ore. (AP) -

Elijah Brown had 19 points and seven rebounds, and MiKyle McIntosh added 16 points to lead Oregon past Arizona State 75-68 on Thursday night.

Paul White had 11 points for the Ducks (18-10, 8-7 Pac-12), who beat the Sun Devils (19-8, 7-8) for the eighth consecutive time and moved into a tie for sixth in the conference standings.

Shannon Evans II led ASU with 25 points and Remy Martin added 15 off the bench. Tra Holder, the Sun Devils' leading scorer at 19.3 points per game, was 0 of 6 from the field and went scoreless for the first time in 64 games, since near the end of his sophomore season.

Kodi Justice had 12 points for ASU.

Brown, who was coming off a 19-point game against UCLA, was 8 of 12 overall and scored 12 points in the second half as Oregon never trailed after the break. The Ducks outrebounded ASU 40-32 and had a 36-14 edge in points in the paint.

Oregon led 43-40 after a sluggish first half by going inside, led by McIntosh with nine points. Brown had 10 straight points bridging halftime as the Ducks built their largest lead at 53-40.


Arizona State fell to eighth place and below .500 in conference play with three Pac-12 games remaining. The Sun Devils need to avoid an 8-9 matchup in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament if they don't want the possibility of facing Arizona in the quarterfinals.

Oregon catches the Pac-12's only ranked team in Eugene at the perfect time - Arizona without suspended star guard Allonzo Trier after he tested positive for a banned substance - though the Wildcats did beat Oregon State 75-65 in overtime without him. Trier's absence, pending an appeal, could throw the Pac-12 tournament wide open in Las Vegas next month.
