Broncos' half court shot ends Ducks' 46-game home win streak

Boise State's Alex Hobbes pulls down an offensive rebound in front of Oregon's Abu Kigab and Payton Pritchard during an NCAA college basketball game in Eugene Ore. Friday Dec. 1 2017

An unreal shot by Lexus Williams gave the Broncos its second victory over Boise State in three seasons, and ended Oregon's home winning streak which, entering the game, was the longest in the country. The Broncos are just the third nonconference team to win at Matthew Knight Arena, which opened in 2011, against 55 losses.

Chris Sengfelder hit both free throws to put Boise State up 70-68 with eight seconds remaining. Still, it's not often that we see back-to-back rematches in college football, so look for both teams to pull out all the stops with Mountain West glory at stake.

"No", Altman said when asked if he remembered the start of the streak.

Lexus Williams drove to the ideal spot to insert the dagger, from dead center inside the OR logo. "When we get out of position, we just reach". That honor will likely go to the victor of UCF vs. Memphis in the American title game.

"We have a tremendous amount of work to do", Altman said. "We have not made strides in the areas we need to make (strides)".

The last time the Oregon Ducks lost a basketball game at Matthew Knight Arena, the football team was in Dallas for the national title game, Payton Pritchard was a junior in high school and Dana Altman was just on the cusp of turning a football school into something more.

Arizona handed the Ducks their last loss at home 80-62 in one of their worst beatings of the last three years.


At home the Broncos are averaging 30.7 scoring, and holding teams to 19.3 points scored on defense.

"That's something I'm going to remember", the sophomore said.

Coach Wayne Tinkle, in the official statement, said "we hold our student-athletes to a high level of expectations on the court, off the court and in the classroom". The Pios are 1-4 overall, the Bearcats 3-1.

Lewis & Clark shot under 25 percent from the floor (16 of 65) while Willamette hit half of its field goals.

The Broncos shot 7 of 11 from 3-point range in the second half, with Jessup making 5 of 7.

Andrew Vickers had 15 points and Nico Bricker 11 points and seven rebounds for L&C. The Ducks' lone game outside OR before January is at Fresno State on December 16.
