Joseph Young scored 28 of his career-high 36 points in the second half to help No. 18 Oregon rout Western Carolina 107-83 on Wednesday night.

Mike Moser added 26 points and Elgin Cook had 16 for the Ducks (2-0), who opened the season with an 82-75 win against Georgetown last Friday at Camp Humphreys, a U.S. Army base in Pyeongtaek, South Korea. They returned to Oregon the next day and resumed practice Monday.

Young, a transfer junior guard from Houston, made all seven of his shots in the second half and only missed three of his 12 attempts in the game. He was also 15-for-16 from the free-throw line.

Trey Sumler scored 29 in his season debut for the Catamounts (2-1).

The Ducks (2-0) led 41-39 at halftime but made 10 of their first 12 shots in the second half to take a 71-55 lead with 11:49 to play.
