No. 11 Oregon loses Brooks in win over California

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Losing its best player to injury left No. 11 Oregon more somber than celebratory after it rewrote some school history with its 15th consecutive victory.

"It takes a little wind out of your sails," coach Dana Altman said of the Ducks' reaction when Dillon Brooks didn't join them for the second half.

Jordan Bell scored a career-high 26 points, Casey Benson had 15 on five 3-pointers and Oregon rolled to an 86-63 victory over California on Thursday night.

Dayton hands Richmond 1st loss in Atlantic 10, 75-59

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Charles Cooke scored 17 points and Scoochie Smith added 15 to lead five Dayton players in double figures for a 75-59 victory over Richmond on Thursday night.

Dayton has outscored its opponents in the second half in 17 of 18 games this season.

But it was the first half that keyed Dayton's win as the Flyers were 16 of 28 (57 percent) from the floor to build a 40-29 lead. Cooke hit two free throws for a 14-point lead early in the second half until Richmond went on a 14-0 run to tie it at 45. But the Spiders didn't take the lead.
