Boise State topped Oregon in an instant classic in Eugene Friday night by a score of 73-70.

An unreal shot by Lexus Williams gave the Broncos its second victory over Boise State in three seasons, and ended Oregon’s home winning streak which, entering the game, was the longest in the country.
Chandler Hutchison, playing in his second game after recovering from a head injury, had 20 points, 10 rebounds and three rebounds in the Bronco win. Zach Haney (17 points) and Justinian Jessup (15) were also in double figures for Boise State.
Payton Pritchard led the Ducks with 28 points and three rebounds.
Boise State moves to 7-1 on the season as the Mountain West picks up its first top 50 KenPom victory of the season. The MWC had previously lost 25 of its past 26 top 50 KenPom matchups.
Oregon suffered its third loss of the season.
