Oregon 73, Portland 46

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Eleanor Haring had 15 points and Jessie
Shetters recorded nine points and a career-high 16 rebounds to lead
Oregon to a 73-46 victory against Portland on Tuesday at McArthur
Court.

Tamika Nurse and Jamie Hawkins also scored 11 points each for
the Ducks (4-1), who shot 51 percent from the field and scored more
than 50 points for the first time in four games.

Laiken Dollente scored 10 points to lead the offensively
challenged Pilots (4-3). Portland shot 29.5 percent (8-for-61) from
the field overall, including a 3-for-16 performance from the
3-point line.

Oregon took advantage of Portland's poor shooting late in the
first half. Up 23-15, the Ducks outscored the Pilots 19-4 in the
final 6:50 to lead 42-19 at the break.

Haring got the run going with a jumper, and Shetters and Micaela
Cocks added five points each during that stretch. The Pilots,
meanwhile, were 1 for 11 from the field during that same time span.

Oregon never led by less than 18 points in the second half, and
three times were up by as many as 30. The first came with 8:19 to
play on a free throw by Hawkins that made it 67-37. The last came
at the 5:40 mark following a layup by Cocks that put the Ducks up
71-41.
