EUGENE, Ore. – Joseph Young scored 25 points as Oregon took a commanding lead early and held off rival Oregon State for a 93-83 Pac-12 basketball victory Sunday.

The Beavers twice cut Oregon’s lead to two points in the second half, the latter time when Hallice Cooke sank two free throws to make the score 72-70 with 5:11 remaining.

But the Ducks produced stops on five of Oregon State’s next six possessions and put together a 12-3 run.

“I’m glad for the guys,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “I’m glad they battled back. We got in that huddle and just said, ‘Fellas, take a deep breath here. It still comes down to stops and rebounds; it still comes down to execution.’ And I thought they did a good job.”

No major-college teams have played more against each other than the Ducks and Beavers, who met for the 341st time. Oregon State leads the series 185-156.
