Recap: Washington vs. Oregon

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - C.J. Wilcox knocked down all six of his free- throw opportunities in the final 30 seconds as he guided Washington to a thrilling 90-86 win over Oregon in the quarterfinals of the 2012 NIT at Alaska Airlines Arena.

Wilcox finished with 17 points in a reserve role for the top-seeded Huskies (24-10), one of four players to score in double figures for the hosts. Terrence Ross delivered a game-high 24 points, Tony Wroten 22 and Abdul Gaddy 11 points to go along with a game-high 10 assists and seven rebounds.

The third-seeded Ducks (24-10) were paced by Olu Ashaolu who posted 20 points and nine rebounds off the bench, followed by E.J. Singler with 19 points, nine rebounds and four assists before fouling out. Tony Woods and Devoe Joseph tacked on 15 and 12 points, respectively.

Oregon knocked down an impressive 53.3 percent from the field in the first half, thanks in part to Singler who had 15 points in the first half, the team heading towards a 46-42 edge at the break.

In the second half the Ducks dipped all the way down to just 38.5 percent accuracy from the floor, including a mere 3-of-15 behind the three-point line. On the other side Washington feasted at the free-throw line (19-of-23) and leaned heavily on Wilcox down the stretch to keep the team in front.

In a game that experienced 10 ties and 13 lead changes, the Huskies outscored Oregon at the charity stripe, 27-17.

With the victory Washington, which split a pair of games with the Ducks during the regular season, now heads to Madison Square Garden in New York City for the semifinals of the 75th annual tournament, clashing with the survivor of the Minnesota/Middle Tennessee matchup.
