EUGENE, Ore.- The Texas Southern Tigers Basketball team continued to impress on Monday night as they defeated #18 Oregon by a score of 89-84 capping what was TSU's second big non-conference win of the season against a Power Five opponent.
The Tigers had previously defeated Baylor of the Big-12 on the road to open up the season. Tonight's win was even more impressive as the Tigers made a huge statement in knocking off Pac-12 foe Oregon. The loss was only the fourth non-conference defeat for Oregon since the Ducks opened Matthew Knight Arena in 2011.
Trayvon Reed played big for the Tigers scoring 23 points on a perfect shooting night from the field as he went 9-of-9 with seven rebounds and one blocked shot.
Guard John Jones was without a doubt another key contributing figure in the Tigers' win as he racked up his 20 points off the bench with hot shooting from behind the arc. Jones went 4-of-7 from three-point range while also contributing two rebounds in 26 minutes of action.
Derrick Bruce and Jalyn Patterson scored 13 points each while Jeremy Combs tallied 11 points and seven rebounds to round out the list of Texas Southern double-digit contributors. Patterson posted a double-double also contributing a game high 11 assists.
TSU trailed 39-32 at the break before outscoring Oregon 57-45 during the second half of play.
"This is a big win because of the program we played," said TSU head coach Johnny Jones. "We played the 18th ranked team in the country and a program that has been to the Final Four and for us to leave here with a win speaks volumes as to how well these guys played tonight."
Texas Southern shot 47.8 percent from the field while Oregon shot 48.5 percent. TSU was able to put up 38 points in the paint to go along with 20 points in transition.
The Tigers will host their home opener on Thursday against Huston-Tillotson at 7:30 pm at the HPE Arena located on the campus of Texas Southern University.
