The first half of Bol Bol’s college debut was a mixed bag against Portland State. He got rim-checked, but also slammed home an alley-oop for his first career points and grabbed some ridiculous one-handed rebounds. Bol scored four points in the first 20 minutes. However, in the second half, the freshman from Olathe, Kansas collected eight more points to finish with a double-double, 12 points and 12 rebounds.

Portland State kept things close for the first 11 minutes, but junior Payton Pritchard’s 18 points in the half pushed No. 14 Oregon to a 45-29 first half lead. Pritchard only scored four points in the second half, but he was ridiculously efficient missing just one shot the whole night. He was six-of-seven from the field–including one three-pointer–and nine-of-nine from the line.

Oregon won big, 84-57. The win marks Oregon’s 21st straight win in home openers.

As a team, the Ducks shot 54 percent from the floor (27-50) with four-of-seven shooting from three point land. There was no chance for Portland State to keep up at their shooting clip, 29 percent from the field (21-73) including five-of-35 from three.

Next up for Oregon is Friday at home against another Big Sky opponent, the Eastern Washington Eagles.
