    EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Chelsea Wagner scored 17 points to lead Oregon to its first Pacific-10 Conference win of the season, 70-41 win over California on Thursday.

    Cicely Oaks added 13 points for the Ducks (10-3, 1-2 Pac-10) and Gabrielle Richards had 12.

    Freshman center Devanei Hampton scored 15 points on 5-of-19 shooting for Cal (11-4, 3-2), which was held to its lowest point total of the season.

    Oregon, playing its first home game since Nov. 28, hit 10-of-21 3-pointers against the Golden Bears, who started the night as the Pac-10 leader in scoring defense.

    Off to its best start since the 1992-93 season despite starting four freshmen, California shot 26 percent (14-of-53) from the field and had 19 turnovers. The Golden Bears went almost eight minutes in the second half without a field goal as they dropped their 13th consecutive game in Eugene.

    Richards scored on back-to-back inside baskets to give Oregon a 32-15 lead with 4:02 left in the first half.

    The Ducks led 34-17 at the break and extended the lead in the second half. Wagner's 3-pointer with 7:30 left gave the Ducks their largest lead at 59-28.

    Oregon's Jessie Shetters, a 6-foot-6 junior center, had a career-high five blocks.
