  • EUGENE — Damyean Dotson scored 12 points as Oregon demolished Idaho State 87-35 on Saturday.
    Arsalan Kazemi, Dominic Artis and Tony Woods had 11 points each for the Ducks (8-1), who are off to their best start in three seasons under coach Dana Altman.
    Melvin Morgan scored 11 for the Bengals, who dropped to 1-6 under first-year coach Bill Evans.
    "Bill's a really good coach, but they've got a ways to go as a team, so we should've won the game," Altman said. "But I think we played really good today, so we made them look bad because our energy was good, our defensive intensity was better and our ball movement was much better."
    Idaho State actually led 5-4 after the first three minutes of the game, but E.J. Singler made a 3-pointer to give the Ducks a 7-5 advantage, and Oregon outscored Idaho State 50-11 the rest of the half to lead 54-16 at the break.
    Kazemi had 11 points and six rebounds in the first half. Dotson scored all of his points in the second half.
    Oregon dominated Idaho State in every statistical category.
    The Ducks outshot the Bengals 52.5 percent to 27.9 percent and outrebounded them 47-19 — including 23-4 in the first half.
    Singler finished with nine rebounds, seven points and five assists. Kazemi also had eight rebounds.
    "They didn't lack size, we just crashed the boards," Woods said.
    After recording 18 or more turnovers in each of the last five games, the Ducks had just seven on Saturday against 19 assists.
    "That's been one of our big problems," Singler said. "That's a big one for us. We were really focusing on that this week and it showed tonight."
    All 12 players who saw action scored for the Ducks, including their two walk-ons, who both played in the first half.
    The Ducks blew the game open with a 22-1 run early in the first half that featured five points from Woods and 3-pointers by Singler, Carlos Emory and Johnathan Loyd, for a 26-6 lead.
    Oregon ended the half on an 18-1 run, a stretch highlighted by dunks from Kazemi, Singler and Woods on consecutive possessions.
    Dotson, who missed his only shot attempt in the first half, scored nine points in the first four minutes of the second half, and his 3-pointer with 6:10 to play gave the Ducks their largest lead of the game at 82-28.

    At Corvallis, Roberto Nelson had a season-high 26 points to lead Oregon State.

    Nelson, a junior guard, set a new career high with nine field goals and tied another with five 3-pointers. He was 9 of 13 shooting overall and added four rebounds and three steals.
    Moreland's 14 points tied a career high. He now had three straight games with double-digit rebounds.

    Jonathan Holmes made a layup with 6.3 seconds left to pull the Longhorns within one point, but the Bruins held on for the win.
