Damyean Dotson scored a team-high 19 points, including a short jumper from the key to give Oregon the lead for good, in an 83-79 upset of No. 18 UNLV on Friday night in the semifinals of the Global Sports Classic.
Dotson was one of four Ducks (5-0) to score in double figures. Carlos Emery had 16 points, Ben Carter added 12 and Dominic Artis contributed 11.
In a wild second-half that had 16 lead changes and five ties, the Runnin' Rebels (2-1) raced out with an 8-2 run to take a 45-42 lead at the 14:54 mark. But Oregon never lost focus and used a 13-5 run of its own to regain control.
