The Ducks survived a game that neither team led by more than three points in the second half with some tough rebounding and timely defense.
Eugene Omoruyi had 19 points to lead Oregon (12-4, 7-3 Pac-12). LJ Figueora had 13 points and made three 3-pointers including a crucial transition 3 late in the game.
Duarte was only 4 of 14 from the floor (2 of 7 on 3s) but had an open look for the go-ahead basket after Will Richardson drove and passed the ball out to the open Duarte.
