The Oregon Ducks kept their at-large NCAA Tournament hopes alive on Thursday — but only barely.

Oregon (16-7, 8-4 Pac-12) escaped with a nail-biting 85-80 win over the Washington Huskies at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene. The Ducks ran up a 20-point lead in the second half but led by just one possession with less than three minutes to go.

Thanks to a few key defensive stops and some clutch free throw shooting down the stretch, they managed to hang on for the win.

Jermaine Couisnard led Oregon with 27 points and five assists, and N’Faly Dante added 15 points and nine rebounds.

ScoopDuck photographer Eric Becker was on hand to capture the action. Check out his photo gallery below.
