Things get away from Cardinal in second half
EUGENE, Ore. — Payton Pritchard scored 20 points, Kenny Wooten matched his career high with seven blocks and Oregon did not trail in a 69-46 victory over Stanford on Sunday night.
Louis King added 16 points and Victor Bailey Jr. had 11 off the bench for the Ducks (15-9, 6-5 Pac-12), who have won four of their past five games. Oregon used a 20-5 run in the second half to lead by as many as 26.
Freshman Bryce Wills, the Pac-12’s youngest player, led the Cardinal (12-11, 5-6) with 13 points. KZ Okpala had 10, nearly eight below his season average, and Josh Sharma had eight points and 10 rebounds.
Stanford tied its season low with 46 points and made just 15 of 55 (27.3 percent) from the field.
The Ducks shot 26-for-59 (44.1 percent) and had a 41-37 edge in rebounds, led by King’s seven.
The Cardinal struggled from the opening tip without sophomore point guard Daejon Davis, who was injured Thursday night in a head-to-head collision at Oregon State.
Stanford missed 21 of its first 22 shots, with Wooten blocking five of them, to trail 16-2 after the opening 13 minutes. The Cardinal then recovered enough to hit 6 of 9 to end the half with Oregon up 30-20.
Head coach Jerod Haase saw Stanford shoot 27.3 percent from the field, its second-worst performance of the season.
