PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Day 2 of the PK80 college basketball tournament is underway in Portland. Here’s a look at all the action.

Payton Pritchard made seven of Oregon’s 15 3-pointers, scoring a career-high 29 points and leading the Ducks to an 89-79 overtime win over DePaul in the consolation bracket of the PK80 Invitational on Friday night.

Oregon (4-1) attempted a school-record 39 3-pointers, letting fly without hesitation against the Blue Demons. The Ducks needed all of the 15 that dropped to hold off DePaul and rebound from their loss to UConn in the opening round of the tournament.

Pritchard’s previous career-high was 20 points set earlier this season against Ball State. He was 7 of 13 on 3s. Elijah Brown added 19 points and Troy Brown Jr. chipped in with 11 for the Ducks.

Marin Maric led DePaul (1-4) with 22 points and Eli Cain added 19. But the Blue Demons scored just 10 points over the final 3 minutes of regulation and overtime combined.

Pritchard nearly won it in regulation but his attempt at a game-winning 3 at the buzzer rattled around and out. It was the first overtime game this season for both teams.

Pritchard came through in the extra session. His free throws pulled Oregon even at 79-all and his 3-pointer following a DePaul turnover gave the Ducks a three-point lead. Brown added a pair of free throws and the Ducks led 84-79 with 1:47 remaining.

DePaul had its chances in regulation, appearing to take control when Devin Gage made a difficult driving layup while being fouled. The three-point play gave the Blue Demons a 64-58 lead with 7:25 left, matching their largest lead of the night.

It was gone in an instant. Consecutive 3s by Brown and Pritchard pulled Oregon even and Pritchard’s sixth 3 of the night with 4:53 left gave Oregon a 69-67 lead.

DePaul continued to hang around pulling with 72-71 on free throw from Cage. Paul White hit a 3 from the wing for Oregon, but Cain scored inside and after Pritchard was called for an offensive foul, the Blue Demons got even at 75-all on free throws from Maric with 1:12 remaining.

Those were the final points of regulation as Oregon ran off the final 30 seconds before Pritchard’s attempt at the buzzer.

THE TAKEAWAY

DePaul: The Blue Demons continued to struggle from behind the 3-point line. DePaul was 4 of 19 on 3s and have yet to make more than six in any game this season.

Oregon: The Ducks had not been shy at attempting 3s this season but it went to another level against DePaul. The Ducks set a new season-high with their 30th 3-point attempt with 8 minutes remaining. The previous school record was 38 attempts, set twice. … Pritchard was three off the school record for 3s by an individual. Tajuan Porter had 10 3s in a game in 2006.

UP NEXT

DePaul: The Blue Demons will face Portland on Sunday.

Oregon: The Ducks will take on Oklahoma on Sunday.

Tyler Wideman had 18 points and eight rebounds and Butler held off a late charge by Portland State for a 71-69 victory Friday in the Phil Knight Invitational tournament.

Kelan Martin added 16 points for the Bulldogs (4-2), who will play the winner of Friday’s later game between Ohio State and Stanford on Sunday.

Martin’s layup put the Bulldogs ahead 69-64 with 2 minutes left, and after Kamar Baldwin added a jumper, it appeared that Butler had the win in hand. But Deontae North’s 3-pointer pulled the Vikings closer at 71-69 with 42 seconds left.

After a timeout, North missed a 3-pointer with 3 seconds to go, and that sealed the victory for the Bulldogs.

North finished with 18 points off the bench for Portland State (4-2).

Winner’s bracket | Loser’s bracket

The Vikings had the misfortune of opening the tournament against No. 1 Duke. Portland State played well, but eventually fell to the Blue Devils 99-81. North led the Vikings with 24 points, including 20 in the first half, but fouled out with 8:39 left in the game.

Butler fell to Texas 61-48 on the tournament’s opening day. Baldwin had 15 points to lead the Bulldogs, who trailed by as many as 10 points in the second half but rallied to come within three points late. Martin added 12.

The tournament involves 16 teams playing in two brackets on Thanksgiving, Friday and Sunday, with a break on Saturday. The field also includes No. 4 Michigan State, No. 7 Florida and defending NCAA Tournament champion North Carolina.

Dubbed the PK80, the tournament celebrates Nike co-founder Phil Knight’s 80th birthday.

Portland State and Butler were in the Motion Bracket, playing Friday at the Moda Center, home of the Portland Trail Blazers. Teams in the Victory Bracket played at the adjacent Memorial Coliseum.

Butler led by as many as nine points in the first half, going up 28-19 on Martin’s layup with 7:55 left in the half. The Bulldogs led 38-34 at the half.

Bryce Canda’s 3-pointer pulled the Vikings within 40-37 early in the second half, but Butler responded with a 7-1 run. Portland State again closed to within 59-57 on Holland Woods’ layup with 8:14 left and never let the Bulldogs extended their lead to double digits.

Former Butler coach Chris Holtmann now coaches at Ohio State, which lost 86-59 to Gonzaga on Thursday night. LaVall Jordan, an alum, is in his first season as Butler’s coach.

BIG PICTURE

Portland State: The Vikings’ opener against Duke was the first time in program history that the team had faced a top-ranked opponent. Portland State’s last win over a ranked opponent was an 86-82 victory over then-No. 25 Portland in December 2009.

Butler: The Bulldogs shot just 32.8 percent from the floor against Texas (19 of 58). It was the team’s worst offensive output since shooting 23.7 percent against Oklahoma in a 59-46 loss in 2014.

UP NEXT

Butler goes on to pay the winner of Friday evening’s game between Ohio State and Stanford. Portland State will play the loser of that game on Sunday.

Luke Maye had career-highs with 28 points and 16 rebounds, Kenny Williams had 16 of his 19 points in the second half, and No. 9 North Carolina slowed down high-scoring Arkansas beating the Razorbacks 87-68 on Friday in the semifinals of the PK80 Invitational.

The Tar Heels were smothering on the defensive end, holding the Razorbacks under 80 points for the first time this season. The Razorbacks shot just 32 percent in the first half and were dominated on the boards getting outrebounded 46-30.

Maye carried the Tar Heels offensively for the first 25 minutes before Williams and Joel Berry II got going. Maye made 11 of 16 shots and 11 of his rebounds came at the defensive end. Berry was just 3-of-12 shooting, but he made 7 of 8 free throws. Williams took just three shots in the first half, but was 6-of-9 shooting in the second half.

The Tar Heels (5-0) will face either Michigan State or UConn in the “Victory Bracket” championship game on Sunday night.

Jaylen Barford led Arkansas (4-1) with 21 points and C.J. Jones added 12 off the bench. Daniel Gafford, who was averaging nearly 16 points per game, was hampered by foul trouble and finished with just five points.

North Carolina used two first-half runs to take control. Down early, the Tar Heels rattled off 13 straight points to take the lead for good. They followed with a 14-4 run to close the first half and led 37-26 at the break.

Arkansas had a couple of second-half rallies that fell short. The first came after second-leading scorer Daryl Macon had to be helped off the court due to a leg injury suffered on a baseline drive. Barford scored five straight points and layups from Dustin Thomas and Gafford pulled the Razorbacks within 55-48 with 13:01 left.

Maye tipped in a miss and the Tar Heels scored nine of the next 13 points to build the lead back to 14 on Theo Pinson’s layup with 9:20 remaining.

The lead remained there until consecutive 3s by Jones. Maye missed in the lane and a three-point play by Barford pulled the Razorbacks within 74-68 with 3:32 remaining. It was the final points for Arkansas. Berry hit two free throws and an offensive foul on Arkansas led to Pinson’s thundering one-handed dunk and a 10-point lead with less than 3 minutes left.

THE TAKEAWAY

Arkansas: Macon was already struggling from the field before getting injured. Macon was 1 of 9 in the first half and 2-of-11 overall. He was 7-of-13 shooting with six 3-pointers in the opening round win over Oklahoma.

North Carolina: Maye’s previous career-high in points was 26 against Northern Iowa in the season opener and his previous high in rebounds was 15 against Florida State last season.

UP NEXT

Arkansas: The Razorbacks will face either Michigan State or UConn on Sunday.

North Carolina: The Tar Heels will face either Michigan State or UConn on Sunday.

Freshman Marvin Bagley III had a career-high 34 points and added 15 rebounds, and No. 1 Duke rallied to defeat Texas 85-78 in overtime on Friday in the semifinals of the PK80 Invitational.

Gary Trent Jr. added 17 points for the Blue Devils (7-0), who trailed by 16 points in the second half and were forced to play five freshmen once senior Grayson Allen fouled out.

Duke advanced to play the winner of Friday night’s late game between No. 7 Florida and No. 17 Gonzaga for the title on Sunday.

Dylan Osetkowski had 19 points and seven rebounds for Texas (4-1), which fell short of its first-ever victory over a top-ranked team.

Bagley made consecutive dunks to give the five-time NCAA champion Blue Devils a 78-73 lead in overtime. Andrew Jones’ layup pulled Texas within 78-77 with 1:20 left. Wendell Carter’s put-back dunk pushed Duke’s lead to 82-78 and Trent’s free throws with 11 seconds left sealed the win.

Bagley tied the Blue Devils’ freshman scoring record set by J.J. Reddick on Jan. 15, 2003, against Virginia.

Bagley’s short jumper tied it at 70 and put the Duke fans in the crowd on their feet. Allen fouled out with 2 minutes left in regulation and Kerwin Roach II dunked to put Texas back in front 72-70.

Trent made a layup and his free throw gave Duke a 73-72 lead with 32.8 seconds left. Coleman made a free throw on the other end to re-tie it but missed the second and the game went to overtime.

The tournament celebrates Nike co-founder Phil Knight’s 80th birthday.

Duke and Texas were in the Motion Bracket, playing Friday at the Moda Center, home of the Portland Trail Blazers. Teams in the Victory Bracket played at the adjacent Memorial Coliseum.

Roach beat three defenders for a decisive dunk that gave Texas a 42-29 lead and the Longhorns led 43-31 at the break.

It was the fifth meeting between the teams and Duke has won all of them.

BIG PICTURE

Duke: Bagley is the first Duke freshman to have five double-doubles over his first seven games.

Texas: Kemba Hepa, a senior power forward at Portland’s Jefferson High School, committed to Texas this past week. The four-star recruit also considered Gonzaga.

AGAINST No. 1: Texas had faced a No. 1-ranked opponent nine previous times, with a 0-9 record. The most recent meeting was on Feb. 29, 2016, when the Longhorns lost 86-56 to No. 1 Kansas.

UP NEXT

Duke faces the winner of Friday’s late game between No. 17 Gonzaga and No. 7 Florida.

Texas plays the loser of Florida-Gonzaga.

Young pops for 33 points as Oklahoma beats Portland 93-71

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Trae Young scored 18 of his 33 points during Oklahoma’s big first half, Khadeem Lattin added 19 points and 16 rebounds, and the Sooners pulled away in the final five minutes to beat Portland 93-71 on Friday in the consolation bracket of the PK80 Invitational.

Young continued the outstanding start to his career with a first-half flurry that gave the Sooners a 46-31 lead at halftime. He then came up with big baskets late in the second half after Portland had rallied, trimming a 23-point deficit to five. It was part of a 15-2 run that finally put away the pesky Pilots.

Young has scored at least 20 points in each of his last three games and has been the Sooners (3-1) leading scorer in every game this season.

JoJo Walker led the Pilots (2-3) with 15 points, while Josh McSwiggan and Franklin Porter both added 13. The Pilots were 8 of 18 on 3-pointers in the second half helping to fuel their rally.

But it was too much to overcome after Oklahoma’s big close to the first half. Leading by four, the Sooners finished the first half on a 21-10 spurt. Young got the run started with a 3-pointer and had nine of Oklahoma’s 21 points to close the half.

Portland trailed by as many as 23 with just under 15 minutes remaining but started to get hot from deep and trimmed away at the lead. The Pilots had the ball down by eight with 7:57 left but Marcus Shaver’s open 3 rimmed out. After an Oklahoma turnover, McSwiggan hit a 3 with the shot clock about to expire and the Pilots were as close as they had been since it was 25-21 late in the first half.

That would be the end of Portland’s rally. Matt Freeman and Young scored on consecutive possessions to push the lead back to nine and Lattin’s putback with 4:44 left took the advantage to 11. The Pilots would get no closer.

THE TAKEAWAY

Portland: The Pilots will be pleased with the resolve in cutting into the big deficit. But the Pilots shot just 39 percent for the game and had 12 turnovers in the first half.

Oklahoma: While Oklahoma allowed Portland to rally in the second half it was an efficient performance by the Sooners. Oklahoma shot 54 percent in the second half and committed just four turnovers.

UP NEXT

Portland: The Pilots will play either DePaul or Oregon on Sunday.

Oklahoma: The Sooners will face either DePaul or Oregon on Sunday.

The Cardinal led by as much as 31-21 late in the first half, but Ohio State closed the gap with an 11-1 run and the two teams went into halftime tied at 32. Stanford didn’t make a shot from the field for the last 4:11.

Bates-Diop led all scorers with 10 points for the Buckeyes at the break.

Stanford scored just six points in the first six minutes of the second half to trail 48-38. Bates-Diop’s layup gave the Buckeyes their biggest lead of the game to that point.
