Ore. 64, No. 23 Washington 60 (OT)
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) _ Lindsey Dion’s short jumper with 48 seconds left in overtime helped lead Oregon to a 64-60 victory over No. 23 Washington on Saturday and snapped a five-game losing streak.
Jamie Craighead added 18 points for the Ducks (13-10, 6-7 Pac-10) and hit two big shots in overtime.
The first was a 3-pointer that put Oregon ahead 60-57 with just under four minutes remaining. With the Ducks leading 62-60 and the shot clock winding down, Craighead hit a long jumper with 7.3 seconds left to provide the final margin.
Angelina Wolvert had 13 points and 17 rebounds for Oregon, which beat the Huskies for the 11th straight time, and Dion had 15 points.
Megan Franza scored 14 of her 18 points in the second half and overtime to lead Washington, (16-7, 9-4), which had won five straight.
But Franza missed 13 of her 22 shots, and she was stripped of the ball by Elisa Edwards in the lane with just under 40 seconds left and the Huskies trying to set up the potential tying shot.
The game was close the entire way, and Washington blew several scoring chances. The Huskies missed two layup attempts in overtime, and LeAnn Sheets missed two free throws that could have given Washington the lead with 36.9 seconds left in regulation.
With the score tied at 55, Sheets’ layup attempt rolled out, and with a 28 percent free-throw average, her two shots weren’t close. Washington got one more chance, but Giuliana Mendiola’s running jumper was blocked by Jenny Mowe. With time running out, Dion missed with an off-balance jumper, and the game went to overtime.
