Eugene, OR (Sports Network) - Carlos Emory scored 13 points and pulled down seven rebounds as the Oregon Ducks held off the Nevada Wolf Pack, 56-43, in non-conference play at Matthew Knight Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the Ducks (11-2), as they won for the second straight game and sixth time in seven outings, were Tony Woods and Dominic Artis with 13 and 10 points, respectively.
