KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Behind a stifling defense the Oregon Tech men’s basketball team ran away from Pacific Union by an 86-35 final in tonight’s home opener at Danny Miles Court.  Oregon Tech, ranked No. 21 in the preseason NAIA National Coaches’ Poll, will take a 1-0 record to the William Jessup Tournament where the Owls play host WJU and Cal Maritime this Friday and Saturday.

 

The Oregon Tech defense didn’t allow Pacific Union a field goal until nearly seven minutes in, as the Hustlin’ Owls built a 14-5 lead with 13:13 to play in the opening period.  A 20-2 run ensued with the Owls using four triples in the stretch, including two by Mihajlo Matic and one each from Kyle Waits and Austen Flint, to take control at 34-7 with 5:52 on the clock.

 

Pacific Union would cut their deficit to 22 points, 36-14, but Tech would lead by as many as 30 points, 44-14, and head to intermission with their largest advantage at 47-16.

 

Oregon Tech would hold the Pioneers to just three first half field goals with PUC hitting two treys and adding eight points from the free throw line.

 

The differential would stay the same over the first five minutes of the second half, 56-25, before a Matic triple sparked a 10-0 run, with Flint capping it off with a trey of his own.  The Owls would hold a 41 point lead midway through the second half.  Tech, leading by 55 points with 5:50 remaining would eventually earn the 86-35 win.

 

Mihajlo Matic notched a game-high 18 points, all from the three point line (6-of-12) with Austen Flint nailing five triples of his own for 15 points in the game.  Kyle Waits recorded the games only double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.  Brandon Bautista added five assists with Dani Lopez grabbing eight rebounds to go with his eight points.

 

Jordan Greenwell led the Pioneers with 10 points, followed by six points from Ben Vincent.

 

Oregon Tech shot 45.5% from the field (30-for-66), including 15-of-38 from long range and 11-of-12 at the free throw line.  PUC was held to 9-of-49 from the floor (18.4%).
