OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Joseph Young and Oregon shined just a little bit brighter than Oklahoma State.

Young scored 27 points, Elgin Cook added 18 and the eighth-seeded Ducks beat the Cowboys 79-73 in the NCAA Tournament on Friday night.

Dillon Brooks had 17 points for the Ducks (26-9), and Dana Altman got the win in his return to Omaha and the same building where he once coached Creighton.

Le'Bryan Nash had 18 points before fouling out in his final game for ninth-seeded Oklahoma State (18-14). Anthony Hickey added 17 points, and Phil Forte and Tavarius Shine finished with 12 each.

The Cowboys ended their season losing seven of their last eight games.
