Fields, Green lead Stanford over Oregon

EUGENE, Ore. – Landry Fields scored 21 points, Jeremy Green added 18 and Stanford won on the road for the first this year with a 72-65 victory against Oregon on Thursday night.

Green scored all of his points in the second half, going 3 of 10 from the field but 10 of 10 from the foul line. He had 11 points in a 17-2 run that put the Cardinal up 59-43 with 9:07 remaining.

Jack Trotter had 14 points and Drew Shiller 12 for Stanford (12-14, 6-8 Pac-10), which lost 10 previous road games this season.

Jeremy Jacob scored 19 points and E.J. Singler 15 for the Ducks (12-13, 4-9), who dropped their fourth straight.

Fields, the Pac-10’s leading scorer, was 7 of 14 from the field and 6 of 6 from the line.

Stanford led 37-32 at halftime behind seven 3-pointers, including four by Shiller and one from Jarrett Mann, who banked his in as the shot clock expired with 1:23 remaining in the first half. But Matt Humphrey twice cut the Ducks’ deficit to a point early in the second half, the second coming off a steal and dunk.

Oregon had multiple chances to take the lead but missed five straight shots before Green buried a 3-pointer to spark Stanford’s run. The Cardinal led by as many as 17 points, 62-45.

A late 10-1 run by the Ducks made it a four-point game, 65-61, with 1:54 remaining, but the Cardinal closed it out by going 5 of 6 from the line.

Humphrey scored 11 for Oregon, which played without Michael Dunigan. The team’s starting center dressed for the game but remained on the bench due to a sore hip.
