Ducks Crush Beavers

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Aaron Brooks savored every last moment of his final game at McArthur Court.

Brooks scored 18 points to help No. 17 Oregon beat Oregon State 70-49 Saturday.

"The game was exactly what I thought it would be," said Brooks, a four-year starter. "It meant a lot and it felt great to give the fans something to cheer about this year."

Brooks, the Pac-10's leading scorer, made his final claim for conference player of the year. He went 4-for-6 from the 3-point line and 6-for-13 from the field overall.

Bryce Taylor scored 22 points and Maarty Leunen also had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Oregon.

The Ducks (23-7, 11-7) won their final three games of the regular season and have won 14 straight against the Beavers (11-20, 3-15) at McArthur Court. Oregon will go into next week's Pac-10 tournament as the fourth seed and will play Arizona.
