“Everybody got a chance to get some of the rust off, which is always a positive,” he said. “… I was impressed defensively how well we played, how hard we played, and how we created a lot of disruption and turnovers.”
With a size advantage at every position, the Ducks wrecked havoc on the Westmont offensive sets, holding the Warriors to a 24.4% mark from the floor and forcing 28 turnovers. Oregon also won the battle on the boards handily, 33-25.
