Devoe Joseph, playing for the first time since wearing a Minnesota jersey last December, scored 18 points to lead Oregon past Fresno State 74-70 on Saturday. Garrett Sim had 17 points for the Ducks (5-2). He was perfect from the field (5 for 5) and free-throw line (4 for 4). E.J. Singler added 14 points for Oregon, including a jumper with 22 seconds left to make the score 71-66. Joseph, who had to sit out until the end of the fall quarter after transferring to Oregon, came off the bench to shoot 6 for 13 with three 3-pointers. He added four assists and two steals. Jonathan Wills scored 20 points for the Bulldogs (4-6), Jerry Brown and Tyler Johnson 13 each and Kevin Foster 11. In a game with 10 ties and 10 lead changes, the Ducks went up for good, 53-52, on a 3-pointer by Sim with 9:04 to play. But Joseph provided the dagger, hitting back-to-back 3-pointers to push Oregon's lead to 61-54 with 7:35 left.
