Motley 17 Points as Baylor Upsets No. 4 Oregon 66-49
WACO, Texas (AP) — Johnathan Motley scored 17 points in his season debut and Baylor got a big early-season victory, 66-49 on Tuesday over the No. 4 Oregon team playing without its preseason All-American.
The Ducks (1-1) are missing Dillon Brooks, their 6-foot-7 junior forward who was their leading scorer last season but is still recovering from foot surgery during the offseason.
Motley missed the season opener for Baylor (2-0) because of a one-game suspension after violating an NCAA rule by playing in an improper summer league game.
The Ducks (1-1) quickly had a 3-0 lead when Chris Boucher hit from long range on the game's first shot, before they missed their next six shots. After Motley made his first shot of the season and Manu Lecomte's buzzer-beating 3-pointer, Baylor never trailed again.
Dylan Ennis led Oregon with 16 points, and Boucher finished with 12. Jordan Bell had 11 rebounds.
