PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Jillian Alleyne had 25 points on 10-of-13 shooting and 14 rebounds to tie the school record with her 88th career double-double and Oregon used a dominating start to defeat Washington State 73-48 on Friday night.

Alleyne, the Pac-12 career leader in double-doubles, tied Bev Smith’s record set before the NCAA sponsored women’s basketball.

Alleyne made all seven of her shots and Jordan Loera made all three of her 3-point attempts in the first half as Oregon made 15 of 21 shots and raced to a 39-14 lead at the break. The Cougars missed all nine of their 3-point attempts and shot just 25 percent with 12 turnovers.

WSU had a 7-0 run late in the third quarter that helped cut a 29-point deficit to 20, 57-37. Oregon hit five 3s in the quarter with Maite Cazorla making all four of her attempts on her way to 15 points.

Oregon (16-6, 5-6) made 12 of 20 behind the arc and shot 59.5 percent overall.

Borislava Hristova led the Cougars (12-10, 3-8), who have lost five straight, with 19 points. WSU went 3 for 22 on 3-pointers and shot 31 percent.
