Oregon Rolls over Sac. St. 93-66

Forwards Maarty Leunen and Joevan Catron combined for 43 points and 19 rebounds to lead the Ducks to a 93-66 victory over Sacramento State on Tuesday night in Eugene.

Leunen had a season-high 23 points and added 11 rebounds for his sixth double-double of the season for Oregon (8-1). Catron scored a career-high 20 points to go with eight rebounds. Both were 8-for-10 from the field.

Tajuan Porter also scored 17 points for the Ducks, while Bryce Taylor added 15 and Franz Dorsainvil 11.

Oregon guard Malik Hairston , who averages 16.5 points, bruised his right knee in the win over Utah last Saturday. He dressed on Tuesday but was one of four Ducks held out of the game with an injury.

Also out was guard LeKendric Longmire , who has played a key role as a reserve this season. Kent said both Longmire and Hairston could have played if it had been necessary.

''They should be ready for the weekend,'' said Kent, whose team travels to play Nebraska on Saturday. You can watch the game locally on the OSN at 11:00 AM.
