Basketball: Ducks get Pac week off to good start

Only one game on the Pac-12 ledger on Monday night . . . and a victory. Should be a good week for the conference with 15 of 16 games at home . . .

   — Oregon 79, Portland State 70: The Ducks (6-2) got 19 points from junior E.J. Singler, but the big story is senior transfer guard Devoe Joseph, who had 13 points and six assists. In two games since becoming eligile, Joseph has 31 points, 10 assists and just three turnovers.
