Las Vegas, NV. — The Oregon Ducks have advanced to the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals by defeating the Washington State Cougars 75-70 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Despite leading by as much as 19 points in the first half, the Ducks trailed by as many as four in the second half, thanks to a stretch of 9-of-13 three-point shooting by Washington State.
