Oregon looks to rebound against San Francisco

Nov 24, 2007 - 2:55 PM San Francisco (2-2) at No. 11 Oregon (4-1) 10:00 pm EST

EUGENE, Oregon (Ticker) - After an easy opening week, No. 11 Oregon appeared flat its last time out and suffered a loss to a team from the West Coast Conference.

The No. 11 Ducks face another squad from the WCC on Saturday as they look to bounce back against San Francisco.

Oregon outscored its first four opponents by an average of 19.7 points before losing at St. Mary's, 99-87, on Tuesday. It was the most points the Ducks allowed to a non-conference opponent in a regular-season game since losing, 101-97, to Auburn in overtime on December 16, 2000 in the Las Vegas Showdown.

Freshman Kamyron Brown scored a career-high 20 points for the Ducks against St. Mary's in his second straight start in place of the injured Bryce Taylor (sprained shoulder).

Oregon will try to avoid losing consecutive non-conference games for the first time since falling at Portland and home to Portland State in December 2005. The Ducks have won 12 straight non-conference games at home since the loss to Portland State.

San Francisco (2-2) is coming off a 74-69 loss to UC Santa Barbara on Tuesday.

Sophomore forward Dior Lowhorn, a transfer from Texas Tech, had 21 points and eight rebounds against the Gauchos. He averages team highs of 24.0 points and 9.0 rebounds.

The Dons have dropped both of their games away from home this season, and have lost 13 of 14 non-conference road games since 2005-06.

San Francisco has also lost four straight against ranked opponents since beating No. 11 Gonzaga 73-70 on January 20, 2005.

The Ducks and Dons haven't met since Oregon's 67-58 victory on December 12, 1959 in the Montana State Invitational.

Oregon has won six of eight meetings between the schools.
