EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Oregon center Tony Woods scored 14 points and the Ducks overcame a sluggish performance on offense to defeat Nebraska 60-38 on Saturday.

Forward Arsalan Kazemi also had 10 points and a season-high 17 rebounds for the Ducks (9-1), who improved to 8-0 at home this season.

E.J. Singler also scored 13 for Oregon, which was held 19.4 points below its season average, including a season-low point total in the first half, though the Ducks still led 27-18 at the break.

The Ducks also missed on their first 11 3-point attempts before Singler made a pair in the final seven minutes of the game.

Oregon had 16 turnovers, including 10 in the first half.

But led by Woods, who was 7-for-11 from the field, and Kazemi, the Ducks dominated inside, outscoring the Cornhuskers 40-12 in the paint, and outrebounding Nebraska 41-25.

Dylan Talley led the Cornhuskers (6-3) with 11 points.
