Seattle (AP) -- Washington ended three years of frustration against one of its key rivals and left Oregon betting on a long run at the Pac-12 tournament to keep its NCAA hopes alive.

Terrell Brown Jr. and Emmitt Matthews Jr. both scored 25 points, Nate Roberts added a career-high 18 points before fouling out, and Washington beat Oregon 78-67 on Thursday night, dealing a major blow to Oregon’s hopes of an at-large NCAA Tournament bid.
