EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Michael Dunigan had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Oregon used a late run to pull away from Oakland for a 72-60 victory Saturday night.


Malcolm Armstead and Jeremy Jacob also scored 12 each for the Ducks (6-4), who went up 66-48 following a 16-0 run that featured the ejection of Oakland coach Greg Kampe.


Keith Benson scored 14 for the Golden Grizzlies (6-6), including 12 in the second half.
