Johnathan Loyd scored all 11 of his points in the second half, Damyean Doston finished with 13 and No. 23 Oregon snapped a two-game road losing streak with a 65-52 win over Washington on Wednesday night.

The Ducks (20-5, 9-3 Pac-12) had dropped three of four, losing their grasp on sole possession of first place in the conference. They regained it for at least for 24 hours, moving a half-game ahead of Oregon and UCLA, who both play on Thursday night.

Oregon played its sixth straight game without Dominic Artis, out with a foot injury. The Ducks continued to stumble offensively without their starting point guard, but their defensive effort was enough to hand Washington its seventh loss in eight games. It was the first time Oregon has swept Washington in the regular season since 1995.

Abdul Gaddy led Washington (13-12, 5-7) with 17 points.
