SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Jillian Alleyne had 23 of her 26 points in the first half and grabbed 12 rebounds to match the Pac 12 record of 85 double-doubles and Oregon defeated Utah 77-65 on Sunday.

Alleyne tied Stanford’s Chiney Ogwumike for the league record for double-doubles and is three behind Bev Smith’s school record, established before the NCAA sponsored women’s sports.

Lexi Petersen added 18 points - including 11 of the Ducks’ 15 in the fourth quarter - and Lexi Bando had 15 for Oregon (14-5, 3-5). Reserve Kat Cooper hit four 3s for 12 points to help the Ducks sweep a Pac 12 weekend road trip for the first time since 2008-09.

Emily Potter led Utah (12-7, 4-4) with 22 points and 10 rebounds, her 11th double-double this season.

Midway through the second quarter, Alleyne reached 18 points before Utah did. Oregon led 42-26 at the half, going 16 of 33 from the field. Alleyne was 9 of 14 and the Utes were 8 of 31.
