MILWAUKEE -- This was one sweet homecoming for Elgin Cook. Tony Pollard Youth Jersey . The rest of the Oregon Ducks made themselves at home, too. Backed by a vocal group of family and friends, Cook scored a career-high 23 points to power the seventh-seeded Ducks to an 87-68 victory over No. 10 seed BYU in the NCAA tournament on Thursday. "Elgin Cook had a great game," Oregon coach Dana Altman said. "He finished everything down low." Joseph Young had 19 points for the Ducks (24-9), who had to stage a big comeback to beat the Cougars 100-96 in overtime in December. There was no comeback needed this time, with Oregon turning away every BYU charge in the second half. Torontos Richard Amardi had five points off the bench for the Ducks, and tied Cook with a game-high eight rebounds. Led by Cook, a Milwaukee native who starred at nearby Hamilton High School, the Ducks advanced to a third-round game against No. 2 seed Wisconsin on Saturday. The Badgers, playing just 80 miles from their Madison campus, beat American 75-35 in the days first game at the Bradley Center. "Its definitely special to me confidence-wise, but overall it means nothing," Cook said. "Were not satisfied, we havent won anything yet." Tyler Haws scored 19 points for BYU (23-12), which returned to the NCAA tournament after a one-year absence. Matt Carlino and Eric Mika had 15 points apiece. Carlino got the start in place of sophomore guard Kyle Collinsworth, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the West Coast Conference tournament final against Gonzaga. The 6-foot-6 Collinsworth averaged 14 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists, and the Cougars clearly missed his playmaking abilities against the pressing Ducks. "Kyle, hes a guy that you cant replace," Haws said. "He brings so much to our team. But, even with him out, I thought we had chances to win this game. We cut it to three. I thought we had momentum. The guys stepped up." Carlino was 4 for 16 from the field, but he made a couple of big 3-pointers to help BYU close to 56-53 with 12:01 left. But Johnathan Loyd set up Cook for a three-point play on the other end, sparking an 11-2 run. "I just wanted to stay aggressive, get some defensive stops and rebound the ball," Cook said. The Ducks then put away the Cougars with a 15-2 spurt that made it 86-61 with 3:29 to go. Cook started the surge with a layup and Jalil Abdul-Bassit finished it off with two free throws. "We just had to tell everybody to relax. We knew they were going to make a run," Oregon guard Jason Calliste said. "Just weather the storm, just get back to our principles, be aggressive." Oregon is making a second straight NCAA tournament appearance for only the third time in school history. It reached the Sweet 16 a year ago, when the 12th-seeded Ducks beat Oklahoma State and Saint Louis before losing to eventual champion Louisville in the Midwest Regional semifinals. Cook, the son of former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson, was a JUCO player a year ago, but he stepped up repeatedly in his first March Madness experience. The reserve forward was 8 for 9 from the field and 7 for 10 at the free-throw line. "He was fired up right at the selection show. He saw it was in Milwaukee," Loyd said. "Hes been hyped up ever since then. I expected him to play inspired basketball. He has a homecoming, playing in front of friends and family. He was inspired." Wearing bright fluorescent yellow uniforms with green and yellow socks and shoes, Oregon used its superior athleticism to pick apart BYUs defence for much of the first half. Young made two free throws, Mike Moser and Dominic Artis each had a slick layup, and Calliste made two more free throws to help the Ducks open a 39-24 lead with 3:07 left. But Callistes free throws were the last points of the half for Oregon, which had two turnovers and missed a couple of jumpers as BYU went on a 7-0 run to make it an eight-point deficit at halftime. BYU shot 28 per cent (9 for 32) from the field in the first half and 33 per cent for the game. The Cougars were outscored 36-14 in the paint. Calliste added 14 points as Oregons reserves outscored their counterparts 49-10. The Ducks controlled the boards 37-32 after they were outrebounded by the Cougars in their December victory. "Our guys were just overwhelmed at times as far as being able to control their penetration," BYU coach Dave Rose said. "They just keep coming at you. I think thats what hurt us." Tony Dorsett Cowboys Jersey .The result meant Juventus will spend the winter break three points clear of Roma after the league leader beat Cagliari 3-1 on Thursday.Milan remained seventh ahead of the rest of the weekends fixtures, but was provisionally two points behind third-place Napoli in their duel for the final Champions League spot. DeMarcus Ware Jersey . Green-Ellis was Cincinnatis leading rusher each of the last two seasons. His role was reduced last year when Giovani Bernard was added to the backfield. Green-Ellis ran for 756 yards and a career-low 3.New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Johnson had 20 points and fourth- ranked Arizona rallied from a 19-point first-half deficit to beat Drexel, 66-62, in the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off. Kaleb Tarczewski added 15 points and 10 rebounds, and Aaron Gordon totaled 10 points and 13 boards for the Wildcats (6-0), who will play No. 6 Duke in the title game Friday. T.J. McConnell also had 11 points. Chris Fouch scored 29 and Frantz Massenat added 17 points for the Dragons (3-2), who scored the games first nine points and led 27-8 before the Wildcats rallied late in the first half. Drexel junior guard Damion Lee, who came into the game the teams second-leading scorer, was helped off the court midway through the second half with an apparent right knee injury. Arizona had 10 turnovers in the first half and shot 6-of-23 from the field. Fouch had 16 first-half points, but poor shooting from the Dragons prevented them from widening their lead. The Dragons, who will tangle with Alabama Friday in the consolation game, were up 41-38 with under 12 minutes left, but Massenat appeared to turn his left ankle after driving in for a layup. He came back into the game a short time later. Lee was hurt after landing awkwardly on his follow-through of a jump shot. He remained on the court wincing in pain and holding hiss right knee until being helped to the locker room with 10:15 remaining. Troy Aikman Jersey. Despite the injuries, the Dragons went ahead 45-44 with just over eight minutes left on a Fouch jumper. A dunk from Tarczewski and a 3-pointer from Johnson gave the Wildcats a 49-45 lead. They widened the margin to 59-49 following a 3-pointer from McConnell with under two minutes left, and Arizona sank enough free throws down the stretch. Arizona had five turnovers before five minutes expired in the game. The Dragons took advantage, and two free throws from Fouch capped the opening 9-0 burst. His 3-pointer made it 27-8 with nearly seven minutes left in the half. The Wildcats scored the next 11 points and were within 29-20 at the half. "We shared the ball a lot more in the second half," Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "And I hope that playing together is always the right recipe, because part of why we had 20 at the half, and 46 the second half, is we were much more willing to share the ball and pass it." Game Notes: Arizona improved to 21-2 all-time in the NIT Season Tip-Off, including an 8-1 mark at Madison Square Garden ... Both teams shot under 38 percent ... Rodney Williams had four blocks for Drexel .. Lee will sit out the consolation game Friday and will be reevaluated by a doctor.
