On the College hardwood last night in Eugene, the Oregon Ducks tipped off their 5-game home stand with a close 68-63 win over Boise State. 6th year senior Dylan Ennis, a transfer from Villanova, scored 18 points and Tyler Dorsey added 17 as the Ducks rallied from a 14-point first half deficit to beat the Broncos.
Oregon which was ranked a school high 4th in the nation, dropped to 23rd after losses last week in Maui, but with the win last night at home the Ducks improve to 5-and-2. Oregon hosts Western Oregon tomorrow night. Western reached the Final-4 of the NCAA Division-2 Championship last spring.
Meantime, in Corvallis…the Beavers scored an 84-59 win over Southern Oregon with Sophomore Drew Eubanks scoring a game, and career-high 32 points. Oregon State improves to 3-and-4 and will travel to face Mississippi State Thursday night.
