In the 84-56 loss at Oregon on Jan. 23, the Huskies were never in the game and trailed 48-13 at halftime. It was a different vibe this time as Washington snapped a six-game losing streak against Oregon and beat the Ducks for just the second time in the past 14 meetings.

Oregon connected on 38.2 percent of its shots and was 6 of 23 from behind the arc.

Washington used a 13-0 run late in the first half to open a 33-23 halftime lead. Brown scored 14 first-half points.

Washington then started the second half with an 18-5 burst. Matthews scored seven points to start the half and help UW take a 41-23 advantage.

Roberts slammed home a dunk to make it 46-25 with 15:46 remaining. Roberts later hit a turnaround jumper to increase the tally to 51-28 with 13:55 left.

Washington led 63-45 after Roberts' putback with 7:46 remaining, and the Ducks moved within 66-55 on Guerrier's 3-pointer with 3:34 to play.
