Williams, a graduate transfer from Valparaiso, took the inbounds pass from senior Chandler Hutchison and worked his way through traffic for a clear shot.

The shot ended a game that at times looked like it featured an improved OR team from its 1-2 PK80 run and at times featured a chaotic group trying to find its way. OREGON (5-3): McIntosh 4-7 0-0 8, Smith 1-5 0-0 2, White 4-8 0-0 9, Pritchard 9-16 7-7 28, E.Brown 6-15 3-3 17, Kigab 0-1 0-0 0, Cage 0-2 0-0 0, Wooten 1-1 0-0 2, Sorkin 1-4 0-0 2, Bailey 1-2 0-0 2. The 6-foot-11 forward controlled the lane with a soft touch off the glass and twice scored on tip-in putbacks to frustrate the Ducks big men, three of whom had two fouls before halftime. However, the Ducks will have to start over after Friday night.

Williams took the inbounds pass, drove to the middle of the court and while standing in the middle of the OR "O", heaved a halfcourt prayed that swished through the hoop, giving Boise State a 73-70 win, ending Oregon's 46-game home winning streak. They wouldn't lose again until the team reached the NCAA Tournament three times, won the Pac-12 twice, went to a pair of Elite Eights and last season's Final Four. Boise State went to the foul line 25 times, making 18, to the Ducks' 10-of-10 effort. Ending it touched off a boisterous postgame celebration.

Boise State: The Broncos'only true road game among its first 11 was against OR in the rubber match of the three-game series. Unlike Boise State, Ducks games have typically gone over the projected point total (80.0 percent). The Ducks' lone game outside OR before January is at Fresno State on December 16. "When we get out of position, we just reach".

OR has lost three of four games.

Boise State, which came in shooting 42.7 percent from 3-point range and made 16 in its last game, missed its first 10 attempts before hitting four in a row and 7 of 9.
