Ducks In Torrid Struggle
Oregon’s basketball artists painted a spectacular master
piece last night when they defeated the Washington Huskies,
57-56 before 5,000 patrons of the casaba art. The contest, the
third in the series between the Ducks and Huskies, held all
the proportions of a walkaway in its opening stages. Captain
Bob Hamilton touched off a scoring conflagration when be
connected with a set shot from some thirty feet out only twenty
seconds after the affair had started. Durable Dick Wilkins,
whose 20 points enabled him to capture the high point scoring
honors for the evening, added a set shot from twenty feet out
after Hamilton’s opener, and the onslaught began.
It was Oregon 12 and Washington 2, six minutes into the
game. So effective was the Hobsonmen’s offensive and defen
sive tactics that the Seattle scrappers were forced to take five
timeouts in the first half.
Huskies Challenge
With ten minutes remaining in the game, the nature of
the contest abruptly changed. The uncanny eye of Washing
ton’s Eathorne aided in gradually cutting the gap to the point
where the Ducks were barely able to stave off a possible defeat.
Spectators were of the opinion that it was the 1945 quintet
performing for the lemon and green and not the locals of this
year’s up-and-down fame. Oregon couldn’t seem to miss in a
first half that saw them head for the dressing room \yith a 36-18
