An Almost For the Ducks
Washington State Cougars fended off the Ducks last night in Pullman. It came down to a shot at the buzzer for the Oregon men, but they missed the shot. This was the third time this season a loss came down to a last second buzzer. The game was tied at 70 a piece with one minute left in the game, but back to back layups by the Cougars put them up by 4. The Ducks fought back and had a chance to tie it up on a one and one from the free throw line. Payton Pritchard made the first but failed to get the second one to go down. Washington extended the lead on the other end with a free throw. With four seconds left Pritchard had a chance to tie the game but missed the shot. The Ducks have one more chance to make the 20 win mark Saturday against the Huskies.
Beavers Mauled by the Huskies
