Kavell Bigby-Williams helped Oregon to an 80-59 win over Oregon State Saturday afternoon at Gill Coliseum in front of over 9000 spectators that clinched the Ducks’ second straight Pac-12 championship.
The 6’11” junior went 4/6 at the line for 4 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist for an efficient 11 minutes of action.
By virtue of Oregon’s 85-58 win against Arizona on Feb. 4, the Ducks (27-4, 16-2) will be the No. 1 seed for next week’s Pac-12 Tournament.
The former GB U20 has averaged 3.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 9.9 minutes across 29 games so far this season for Oregon, after an impressive JUCO career at Gilette that saw him named the 2015-16 Spalding NJCAA Division I Player of the Year after leading the nation in blocked shots and earning NJCAA first-team all-America honours.
Oregon won back-to-back conference titles for the first time in program history. It was the sixth overall conference title for Oregon. The others came in 1919 (Pacific Coast Conference), 1939 (PCC), 1945 (PCC), 2002 (Pac-10) and 2016 (Pac-12). The 16 conference wins are also a program best.
