Washington State led by 10 at halftime, but Oregon came storming back to take the lead and hold on, 68-61, stifling the Cougars' upset bid.
For a while, it looked like the No. 16 Oregon Ducks would be the next ranked team to fall on an upset-filled Wednesday night. They trailed by 10 at halftime to the Washington St. Cougars at home in a sloppy, ugly first half.
Then, Oregon stormed out of the locker room and scored the first nine points of the second half to cut the deficit to one en route to a 68-61 win at home.
The Cougars' Mike Ladd had 19 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Washington State dropped to 1-5 in Pac-12 play.
With the win, the Ducks are now 6-0 in the Pac-12 and will next host Washington on Saturday night.
