The late start of this game poses a nasty nasty deadline for my newspaper story that appears in tomorrow's game, so I probably won't be able to blog much during this one, but I'll try at least for halftime and final scores instantly, and any significant developments.
The game just tipped off.
First HALF, 11:21 left, Oregon's Chamberlain Oguchi is the early story. He scored 15 of the Ducks first 17 points as they took an early 17-8 lead over WSU. (Malik Hairston just hit a 3 to make it 20-10).
HALFTIME: Oregon 37, WSU 23.
The Cougars mounted a run that cut the lead back to single digits at the 5-minute mark, but the Ducks answered. It's 59-48 now, with 2:55 left.
FINAL: Oregon 66, WSU 55. Oguchi ended with a career-high 26.
