Oregon 81, USC 59

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Cathrine Kraayeveld and Andrea Bills each
had 22 points and 11 rebounds to lead Oregon to a 81-59 victory
over USC on Saturday.

Brandi Davis scored 14 points and Corrie Mizusawa added eight
points and nine assists for the Ducks (14-6, 7-4 Pac-10), who shot
61.7 percent from the field while snapping a three-game skid to the
Trojans (14-6, 8-3).

Eshaya Murphy had 12 points and eight rebounds off the bench and
Brynn Cameron scored 11 for USC, which lost for just the second
time in its last 10 games.

Kraayeveld, a 6-foot-4 senior All-American candidate, hit
9-of-11 shots, including all four of her 3-point attempts. Bills, a
6-foot-3 senior center, was 9-of-14 from the field, with three
blocks and three assists.

Kraayeveld scored the first five points of second half and Bills
scored on consecutive layups as the Ducks used a 9-0 run to take a
54-29 lead with 17:40 left.

Bills' turnaround jumper with 15:02 to play gave Oregon its
largest lead of the game, 58-32.

Unable to break USC's full-court press, the Ducks committed 10
turnovers in the their next 12 possessions. The Trojans took
advantage, scoring 11 straight points to get within 58-44. But
that's as close USC would get as the Ducks improved to 9-1 at home
this season.

Oregon held a 44-28 rebounding advantage to counter its 21
turnovers. USC had just eight turnovers and 11 steals but shot 34.3
percent (23-for-67) for the game.
