Sports Forum / Texas Southern shocks No. 18 Oregon, 89-84
« on: November 27, 2018, 06:16:46 AM »
EUGENE, Ore. -- Trayvon Reed picked the right night to be perfect.

Reed scored 23 points and John Jones added 20 to help Texas Southern shock No. 18 Oregon with an 89-84 victory Monday night.

Reed, a 7-foot-2 senior, made all nine of his shots and also was 5-for-5 from the foul line for the Tigers (2-4), who were 24-point underdogs.

"Trayvon did an excellent job," Texas Southern coach Johnny Jones said. "It was his best game by far all year long. I thought he performed at a really good pace on both ends of the floor.

"Offensively, he was very effective and he played with a lot of energy on the defensive end. I thought he had them uncomfortable at both."

All nine of Reed's field goals came on dunks as the Ducks couldn't keep him away from the rim.

"We never got physical with him," Oregon coach Dana Altman said. "He kind of did whatever he wanted."

It was just the fourth nonconference loss at home for the Ducks since Matthew Knight Arena opened in 2011.

Jalyn Patterson had a double-double with 13 points and 11 assists, and Derrick Bruce added 13 points for Texas Southern, which scored 57 points in the second half.

Oregon led by 13 points early in the second half before the Tigers rallied. Reed's dunk with 9:59 left in the game capped a 23-8 run and gave the Tigers a 61-59 advantage.

Bol Bol, the Ducks' 7-2 freshman center, had 32 points and 11 rebounds for his third double-double. He hit two free throws with 3:20 left to tie the game at 75.

Reed then scored four straight points to give the Tigers a 79-75 advantage with 2:18 left. Will Richardson hit two free throws 12 seconds later to get Oregon back within two.

Bruce had eight points in the final 1:11 to seal the win, including making all six of his free throws in the final 43 seconds.

Payton Pritchard had 14 points, and Will Richardson and Victor Bailey Jr. added 13 each for Oregon (4-2).

"We weren't a team on defense. We were all individuals," Pritchard said. "This is a terrible loss. If we're going to turn around our season right here, we either get better from this or we don't."

Bol scored Oregon's first 10 points, including two 3-pointers, and had 16 by halftime with seven rebounds as the Ducks led 39-32.

Oregon received a scare with seven minutes left in the first half when forward Kenny Wooten crashed into the basket stanchion on a block attempt. The 6-foot-9 sophomore didn't return and spent the second half on the bench with ice and a protective sleeve on his left knee.

The Tigers dominated the boards 41-32 with Reed, Patterson and Jeremy Combs grabbing seven each. Texas Southern shot 57.6 percent in the second half and hit 6 of 11 from 3-point range.

"Stops and rebounds don't mean a lot to us and in the college game they've got to mean a lot more," Altman said. "We've got to change our whole mindset and focus in on the defensive end and the rebounding.

BIG PICTURE

Former LSU coach Johnny Jones, in his first season at Texas Southern, has his Tigers playing 14 of their first 16 games away from Houston. They opened with a 72-69 win at Baylor before losing 104-67 to new-No. 1 Gonzaga.

Oregon's strength of schedule takes more hits next month as only one of its seven opponents during December was among the others receiving votes in this week's Top 25 poll. That's Houston, with one point.

POLL IMPLICATIONS

Oregon bumped up three spots to No. 18 in this week's poll, but the Pac-12's preseason favorite is now in serious danger of exiting the Top 25.

STAT OF THE NIGHT


After making 33 of 42 free throws in their last game, an 83-72 win against Green Bay, the Ducks were 7 of 8 against Texas Southern.

ROLE PLAYER

John Jones, the son of Tigers coach Johnny Jones, was a walk-on last year at Nevada where his father was an assistant coach. The 6-0 sophomore reserve hit all three of his 3-pointers in the second half against the Ducks. "He played like he was playing in high school," Johnny Jones said. "He knocked down shots and I thought he had a gutsy performance for us."

UP NEXT

Texas Southern plays its home opener against Huston-Tillotson, an NAIA member in Austin, Texas, on Thursday night after six road games to start the season.

Sports Forum / Texas Southern rallies for 72-69 upset opener at Baylor
« on: November 07, 2018, 01:18:39 AM »
WACO, Texas (AP) -- Jaylyn Patterson helped give his old coach Johnny Jones quite a start in his new job at Texas Southern.

Patterson, a graduate transfer from LSU, scored 23 points and made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 21 seconds left as Texas Southern rallied from a 17-point deficit in the second half to upset Baylor 72-69 in the season opener for both teams.

''We just kept fighting. We came to win, play hard. Just played the whole 40 minutes,'' Patterson said.

Baylor had never lost to a SWAC school. The Bears had won the previous 56 such games, 11 of those against Texas Southern.

Jones was LSU's coach before spending last season as associate head coach at Nevada. He took the Texas Southern job after the departure of Mike Davis, who went to Detroit Mercy after leading the Tigers to four NCAA Tournaments the past five years.

''This is a great win for our program against a quality team like Baylor,'' Jones said. ''It's about growth and we're hopeful that we'll grow from tonight.''

Patterson's 3 from the left wing was part of a game-ending 34-14 run for the Tigers. He also had two free throws with four seconds left.

''He was obviously the difference in the game. Fifth-year guy from LSU who has been in these situations before,'' Baylor coach Scott Drew said. ''He was the one guy we couldn't lose, he was the one guy you couldn't give up the shots to.''

King McClure, the lone returning senior and the only of three returning Baylor lettermen, also had 23 points. His layup with 37 seconds left had put Baylor up 69-67 before Patterson's big 3.

McClure then missed a layup with five seconds left, then followed Patterson's free throws with a potential tying 3-point try that came up well short as time ran out after it appeared to be deflected.

''Not the start we wanted to the season,'' Drew said. ''Came in knowing we had the fourth-fewest returning lettermen and played like it tonight. We got in foul trouble. ... We played like first-game jitters.''

Still, Baylor led 55-38 after Freddie Gillespie made a jumper with 14 minutes left. Jeremy Combs then made a free throw before Devocio Butler scored seven in a row for Texas Southern - on a jumper, a layup and a 3-pointer - to get the decisive run started.

Trayvon Reed had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Texas Southern. Butler had 13 points and Jeremy Combs 11.

Tristan Clark had 11 points for Baylor, while Mark Vital and Devonte Bandoo each scored 10.

MISSING D1 TRANSFERS

Baylor has two Division I transfers among the nine newcomers, but they both missed the opener. Graduate transfer Makai Mason from Yale didn't play because of a right ankle sprain, and Mario Kegler will miss the first six games for a violation of unspecified team rules. Kegler is a sophomore who redshirted at Baylor last year after transferring from Mississippi State.

BIG PICTURE

Texas Southern got its first NCAA Tournament victory last season. Before Patterson's late 3, the Tigers hadn't led since a Butler 3 that made it 8-7 about 4 1/2 minutes into the game - and they trailed 40-27 at halftime.

Baylor was 3-of-11 on free throws, including Vital's missed 1-plus-1 with 3 1/2 minutes left. The Bears had won their previous 46 consecutive regular season non-conference home games against unranked opponents.

UP NEXT

Texas Southern, which plays its first six games on the road, heads West to play Gonzaga on Saturday night. The Tigers won't play at home until Nov. 29 against Huston-Tillotson.

Baylor plays its next two games against SWAC schools, with a game Saturday against Southern and next Monday against Prairie View. The first non-SWAC team they play is Nicholls State on Nov. 16.
