Boise State's half-court shot breaks Oregon's 46-game home winning streak

The last time the Oregon Ducks lost a basketball game at Matthew Knight Arena, the football team was in Dallas for the national title game, Payton Pritchard was a junior in high school and Dana Altman was just on the cusp of turning a football school into something more. This team has been in as unfriendly of territory as it gets in the college football world and it's a safe bet that coach Tedford has helped them learn from those experiences. OR missed three shots - while grabbing two offensive rebounds - but couldn't convert.

Brown's absence plus the foul trouble left Altman having to rely more on his younger players, and his three available freshmen had just four points.

"Really disappointed", OR coach Dana Altman said.

"We put them on the line way too much with really bad fouls and got beat on second-chance points", OR coach Dana Altman said.

Andrew Vickers had 15 points and Nico Bricker 11 points and seven rebounds for L&C. Keith Smith got two put-back chances up before Sorkin was called for a foul while going after Smith's second miss.

Boise State had a 33-30 edge in rebounds. "We're putting a tremendous amount of pressure on our freshmen".

Williams said he and his teammates were well aware of Oregon's run of success at home.

Coach Wayne Tinkle, in the official statement, said "we hold our student-athletes to a high level of expectations on the court, off the court and in the classroom".

The loss didn't just end Oregon's winning streak, it continued a bad stretch of play the likes of which haven't been seen since the winning streak began.

Oregon's previous loss at Matthew Knight Arena came on January 8, 2015 to Arizona. But they'll have to get past the Boise State Broncos (9-3) for a second straight week, this time on the road.

OR suffered its third loss of the season.

Oregon: Continues a four-game homestand against Colorado State on December 8. Edward, from Rancho Cucamonga, California, is averaging 16.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game.

Boise State, which came in shooting 42.7 percent from 3-point range and made 16 in its last game, missed its first 10 attempts before hitting four in a row and 7 of 9.
