EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Joseph Young scored 18 points, Mike Moser added 15 and No. 13 Oregon improved to 10-0 for the first time since 2006-07 with a 91-63 victory over UC Irvine on Tuesday night.
The Ducks made six of their first seven 3-pointers and led 28-12 after Young hit a 3 with about nine minutes left in the first half.
The lead grew to as many as 21 points and Oregon entered the break leading 48-29.
The game was never in question in the second half as the margin ballooned past 30.
Will Davis II had 20 points for the Anteaters (6-6) and Luke Nelson added 13 points, five rebounds and six assists.
The Ducks started the 2006-07 season 13-0 and went on to win the Pac-10 and advance to the Elite Eight.
Young entered the game leading the Ducks with 19.4 points per game. He and Moser are among seven transfers on Oregon's roster.
The Ducks ranked second nationally in scoring at 89.1 points heading into Tuesday's game.
Dominic Artis, playing for the first time after a nine-game suspension, had five points and eight rebounds for Oregon. Artis and teammate Ben Carter were suspended for selling university-supplied apparel, a violation of NCAA rules. Artis led the Ducks with 3.2 assists per game last year as a freshman.
UC Irvine was picked first in the Big West Conference preseason media poll for the first time in 12 years.
Last year, the Anteaters made the program's first postseason appearance in 11 years, beating High Point in the first round of the CIT before losing to Oral Roberts.
Chris McNealy scored 14 points for UC Irvine, which had four players averaging double figures coming into the game.
The Anteaters have two freshman over 7 feet, including 7-foot-6 Mamadou Ndiaye, the tallest player in the nation.
Ndiaye was limited by two early fouls, but finished with seven points, five rebounds and four blocks.
