PULLMAN — Freshman Klay Thompson scored 25 points, hitting five-of-six 3-pointers, as Washington State beat Oregon 67-38 Thursday night, handing the Ducks their 12th consecutive loss. Taylor Rochestie added 16 points and Aron Baynes scored 11 points and grabbed nine rebounds for the Cougars (13-11, 5-7 Pac-10). Reserve Drew Wiley led Oregon (6-18, 0-12) with 10 points. The Ducks’ leading scorer, Tajuan Porter, was held to seven points and was scoreless in the opening half. Washington State shot 57 percent from the field, including 9-of-13 from 3-point range, to end a three-game losing streak. Oregon was held to 21 percent shooting. The Ducks’ 38 points were a season low, well below their previous low of 52 against Arizona on Jan. 8. Washington State broke the game open early by going on a 25-5 run to start the game. Thompson scored 12 points, including three 3-pointers, during the run. Rochestie contributed eight first-half points. The Cougars went on a 12-4 run in the first five minutes of the second half to lead 41-19.
