    EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Carolyn Ganes scored 18 points to lead Oregon to a 50-44 win against Utah in the consolation game of the Oregon Thanksgiving Tournament at McArthur Court on Saturday.

    Ganes, a reserve post, scored 14 points and made all of her career-high four 3-pointers in the second half as the Ducks (3-1) rallied from a 25-17 halftime deficit.

    Eleanor Haring added 14 points and a team-high six rebounds for Oregon, which made just five field goals and shot 19 percent in the first half, but came out in the second to make half of its 24 shots.

    Joh-Teena Filipe led the Utes (1-4) with 13 points.

    Haring scored the Ducks' first six points after the break to spark a 25-6 run to open the half. Taylor Lilley made a jump shot at the 12:05 mark to tie it 27-27, then back-to-back 3-pointers by Ganes put Oregon up 33-29 with 9:33 to play.

    Ganes' fourth 3-pointer of the half gave the Ducks their greatest advantage, 42-31, with 6:33 left.

    Utah would eventually cut Oregon's lead to 46-41 following a pair of free throws by Morgan Warburton with only 1:31 to play, but Haring answered with a driving bankshot to put the Ducks back up by seven with 1:15 left.

    Ganes and Haring accounted for 24 of the Ducks' 33 second half points.
