EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Joseph Young led five Oregon scorers in double figures with 16 points as the Ducks rode 75 percent shooting from the field in the first half to an 82-64 victory over UCLA on Saturday.

Dwayne Benjamin added 15 points off the bench, Elgin Cook had 11, and Jalil Abdul-Bassit and Ahmaad Rorie scored 10 each for Oregon (14-6, 4-3 Pac-12), which leads the conference in 3-point attempts but tried just 13 and made nine in the rout.
