NIT Tournament 2012, Washington Vs. Oregon: Huskies Advance To Semifinals With Win Over Ducks

A Tony Wroten put-back shot with just under four minutes remaining in the game, gave Washington a nine-point lead over Oregon en route to an eventual 90-86 victory in Tuesday night's NIT quarterfinal match.

Down by four points at halftime, the Huskies' perimeter offense lifted them in the second half. Wroten and Terrence Ross combined for 48 of the team's 90 points. Junior point guard Abdul Gaddy added 11 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds for the Huskies.

Despite being in foul trouble, the Huskies' post players held Ducks junior E.J. Singler to four points in the second half; Singler led all scorers with 15 points at halftime. Oregon's Tony Woods was also held to five points in the second half after socring ten in the first half. Aziz N'Diaye played much of the second half in spite of collecting his fourth foul with 17 minutes left in the game.

Reserve forward Olu Ashaolu led Oregon with 20 points and nine rebounds, while the Huskies were led by a game-high 24 points from Ross.

A three-pointer from Oregon's Devoe Joseph cut Washington's lead to two points with 47 seconds remaining in the game, but six consecutive free-throw makes from C.J. Wilcox sealed the victory for Washington.

The Huskies await the winner of Wednesday's quarterfinal game between Middle Tennessee State and Minnesota. Next Tuesday's NIT Semifinal game will be played in New York at Madison Square Garden.
