Oregon 85, Portland 52

PORTLAND, Ore - Erin Boley had 25 points and nine rebounds, and No. 10 Oregon defeated Portland 85-52 to extend the Ducks' winning streak to 21 games dating to last season.

The winning streak matches the Oregon record set in 1978-79. Sedona Prince added 13 points and seven rebounds for the Ducks (2-0), who led by as many as 37.

Alex Fowler paced the Pilots (1-1) with 12 points.

Junior transfer Taylor Mikesell, who had a career-high 28 points in her Ducks debut against Seattle, scored 11.

The Pilots played without junior guard Haylee Andrews because of a concussion. Andrews averaged 16 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game last season.

Boley, one of two seniors on the Ducks' roster, scored the first seven points of the game and Oregon led 18-9 at the end of the first quarter. Portland's defensive pressure helped keep the margin from getting any wider.

Prince, a 6-foot-7 transfer from Texas, had eight points and four rebounds as the Ducks took a 34-22 lead into halftime. Oregon's 9-0 run to open the third quarter stretched the lead to 42-22.

The Ducks have won five straight in the series.
