EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Mike Moser scored 19 points and No. 14 Oregon beat Pacific 85-62 Friday.

Johnathan Loyd had 13 assists, tied with four others for the second-most ever by an Oregon player.

The 14th-ranked Ducks (5-0) scored 20 straight points after halftime to break open a close game. Pacific (4-1) led 36-29 after the break, but then went nearly seven minutes without scoring.

T.J. Wallace and Trevin Harris had 14 points each for the Tigers.

During Oregon's run to open the second half, Joseph Young scored seven points on one possession.

He was intentionally fouled on a breakaway by Sama Taku, and made a shot despite being held. Young made both free throws, and with the Ducks retaining possession, sank a 3-pointer.

He finished with 14 points. Jason Calliste had 15 points and Damyean Dotson had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Ducks.

The Ducks lost three starters from last year's Sweet 16 squad, but six transfers, including Young and Moser, have strengthened Oregon.

Young, a junior who previously played for Houston, was averaging a team-high 23 points entering the contest.

Moser, a senior who last played at UNLV, was averaging 15.5 points and more than seven rebounds coming into the game.

The crowd for the noon game at Matthew Knight arena was sparser than usual, in part due to the Civil War football game between the Ducks and Oregon State, which was scheduled to start at 4 p.m.
