Ex-Duck Dunigan leads team past Oregon, 72-63.
VALENZA PO, Italy - Former Oregon center Michael Dunigan, in his second year of professional basketball, contributed 12 points and eight rebounds for Casale Monferrato as it defeated the Oregon men's basketball team 72-63 Thursday.
The Ducks ended their exhibition tour of Italy 2-3.
Playing their third game in three nights, the Ducks trailed by as many 20 early in the game, and were outscored in the first quarter 32-13.
"We got off to a bad start, and while we fought back, we could not get over the hump," Oregon coach Dana Altman said. "The game was very physical."
The Ducks outrebounded the Italian team, 51-43, but Oregon had 20 turnovers against six assists and shot 28 percent.
Freshman Brett Kingma led the Ducks with 13 points, after another freshman, Jabari Brown, led Oregon in scoring the four previous games of the trip. Brown scored eight Thursday on 3-of-13 from the floor. E.J. Singler scored eight points on just 1-of-9 shooting and had a game-high 15 rebounds.
Oregon forward Jeremy Jacob, coming off cartilage surgery in both knees last season, was held out of the game for "precautionary" reasons.
