Oregon Beats San Francisco 74-64

December 17, 2020

Oregon was able to extend their winning streak to 5 straight games after beating the San Francisco Dons 74-64. Were you watching Herbert and Marcus duel it out on TNF? Well check out the recap to get caught up on Oregon’s win.

At the first media timeout the game was tied up at 6. Oregon was struggling getting open looks and was shooting 0/3 from behind the arc. 

Oregon trailed 18-14 with just under 12 minutes left in the first half. Taavi Jurkatamn was scoring Oregon as he racked up a quick 11 points. Oregon had 4 turnovers and the Dons had taken advantage of that.

Oregon really started to step up on defense and led 21-18 with just under 8 minutes left in the first half. They didn’t allow a single point in over a 4 minute stretch. Scoring still wasn’t coming easy, but LJ Figueroa was able to knock down a shot and a pair of free throws.

Oregon took a 41-31 lead into halftime. Eugene Omoruyi led the way in scoring with 10. Both Eric Williams Jr and Amari Hardy had 7 points. Oregon shot 52 percent from the field while holding the Dons to 36 percent. Oregon shot just 2/12 from deep.

Oregon continued to build on their lead and led 56-37 with 12 minutes left in the half. Williams Jr was able to pick things up and scored 6 points to start the half. Omoruyi continued to be a force and was able to finish through traffic and draw a foul. The defense was excellent and the Dons weren’t able to get any easy looks.

Oregon led 62-46 with just under 8 minutes left in the game. Williams had a fantastic play where he jumped too early for a putback but somehow repositioned and was able to tip the ball back in. The Oregon defense was suffocating the Dons and they weren’t able to get anything going.

The Dons went on a 9-0 run with just a few minutes left in the game and cut the lead all the way down to 6. Oregon was finally able to score and ended up winning the game 74-64.

Similar to the last game against the Huskies, Oregon allowed the other team to get back into the game late after holding large double-digit leads.

Omoruyi led the team in scoring with 19 points and snagged 5 rebounds. Williams had a fantastic game and finished with 16 points and 6 rebounds. Hardy and Duarte both got into double-digits with 11 each.

Oregon shot 45 percent from the field and held the Doms to 37 percent. Oregon shot just 4/19 from deep but held the Dons to 8/35. The lack of a consistent 3 point shooter has really hurt Oregon this year and once Will Richardson is back in the mix the hope is Oregon can improve in that area.

Oregon won the rebounding battle 36-29. They turned the ball over 12 times but forced 13 turnovers. Oregon dominated the points in the paint battle 44-28.

It was a solid win for Oregon and it now extends their win streak to 5 straight. Next up for Oregon is a battle against the Portland Pilots on Saturday at noon.
