Woods scores 17, Oregon stays unbeaten with 67-45 win over Jacksonville State

Tony Woods scored a career-high 17 points as Oregon remained undefeated with a 67-45 victory over Jacksonville State on Monday night.

E.J. Singler added 11 points and Artis Hicks had 10 for the Ducks (4-0), who are off to their best start since also going 4-0 in 2007-08 — the last year they went to the NCAA tournament.

Woods was 8 for 12 from the field and also tied his career high with five blocks.

Chris Deanes had 10 points for the Gamecocks (3-2), who have dropped consecutive games after opening the season with three straight wins for their best start in 18 seasons. And much like their 77-58 loss to No. 18 UNLV last Saturday, this one wasn't close.

Oregon led 37-20 at halftime. Woods had 12 points and four blocks in the first half, and Singler had 11 points with three 3-pointers.
