Ducks fall flat again at home
EUGENE — A dominating inside game and a big night from Harper Kamp helped the California Golden Bears bolster their NCAA tournament hopes in a big way.
Kamp scored a career-high 18 points off the bench, Jamal Boykin had 11 points and 14 rebounds, and the Bears continued Oregon's miserable season with a 78-60 victory over the Ducks at McArthur Court on Thursday.
Jerome Randle scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half, and Patrick Christopher added 16 for the Bears (20-6, 9-4 Pac-10).
Tajuan Porter scored 19 points to lead the Ducks (6-20, 0-14 Pac-10), who shot 34 percent overall and 5-of-26 on 3-point attempts.
Oregon has lost 20 games for the first time since 1993 and remained winless in the Pac-10.
The Bears, meanwhile, hit the 20-win mark for the first time since 2006, the year of their last NCAA tournament appearance.
In the last 20 years, only five Pac-10 teams who have reach the 20-win benchmark have failed to make the NCAA tournament.
