San Diego at Oregon

When: 7 p.m. Wednesday

EUGENE — Oregon was not about to let another huge underdog walk off its floor celebrating a stunning upset.

Kenny Wooten jammed that sentiment home for the Ducks, and it also didn’t hurt to have another five-star recruit waiting in the wings.

Wooten scored a career-high 20 points and Bol Bol had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead Oregon past Omaha 84-61 on Saturday night.

Wooten was 9-for-12 shooting from the field with six dunks.

“He rolled to the basket and our guys were looking for him,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said. “We’d not done a good job with that, and I thought we threw it up to the rim more often tonight and let him go get a few.

“I thought he did a really good job of going and getting the ball.”

Bol recorded his fourth double-double of the season for the Ducks (5-3), who snapped a two-game losing streak. Victor Bailey Jr. added 16 points off the bench and had four 3-pointers.
