Christopher leads California rout of Oregon 89-57Jan 22, 2010 - 5:36 AM By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer
BERKELEY, Calif.(AP) -- Patrick Christopher scored all 21 of his points in the first half as California quickly took a commanding lead, and the Golden Bears beat Oregon for the third straight time with an 89-57 victory Thursday night.
Christopher scored 14 straight points for his team late in the first half, knocking down both of his 3-point tries, and his big night helped Cal (12-6, 4-2 Pac-10) stay in first place in the conference along with idle Arizona State. Mike Montgomery got to rest his regulars for much of the second half.
Theo Robertson added 18 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals for Cal, which bounced back from an embarrassing 15-point loss at Washington last Saturday.
Jeremy Jacob scored 13 points and Michael Dunigan added nine points and 10 rebounds for the cold-shooting Ducks (10-8, 2-4), who went 1 for 18 from 3-point range in their fourth straight loss.
