EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Payton Pritchard had 19 points and 10 assists, and Troy Brown Jr. also had a double-double to lead Oregon past Washington State 84-57 on Sunday night.

Brown Jr. finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high five steals for the Ducks (17-8, 7-5 Pac-12). The freshman limped to the bench after making two free throws with 44 seconds left following a flagrant foul by Malachi Flynn.

It was Pritchard’s first double-double in 64 games at Oregon and the first time two Ducks players had a double-double in the same game since Dec. 3, 2014.

MiKyle McIntosh and Victor Bailey Jr. each had 13 points, and Kenny Wooten added 10 points and eight rebounds.

Flynn had 16 points to lead the Cougars (9-15, 1-11), and Viont’e Daniels added 11. Robert Franks, WSU’s leading scorer at 17.9 points per game, did not play after reportedly injuring his knee Friday night against Oregon State.

Oregon did most of its damage in transition, outscoring the Cougars 21-3 in fast-break points thanks, in part, to 11 steals. The Ducks also had their way inside with a 34-28 rebounding advantage and 30 points in the paint, compared to WSU’s 12.

Pritchard had six points, including a breakaway dunk off a steal, and an assist in an 8-0 run that put Oregon ahead to stay in the first half. The Ducks led 38-28 at the break.

BIG PICTURE

Oregon is now tied with Washington for fourth in the Pac-12 standings with six games to go. The top four teams receive byes in the conference tournament, avoiding an extra game in Las Vegas next month. Coach Dana Altman’s 13-4 record (.765) is the best in Pac-12 tournament history.

Washington State lost its seventh consecutive game and has just three wins since opening the season 6-0. The Cougars are 0-9 on the road this season with a trip to California and Stanford remaining on the schedule.
