The win ended the Ducks' three-game losing streak and sent the Cougars totheir 29th straight Pac-10 road loss.
Bracey and Jones, the Ducks' top-two scorers and rebounders, were held outof the starting lineup for the first time this season as head coach Ernie Kentcalled for 'just a little shakeup.'
Jones had eight rebounds and eight assists, while Bracey added 10 reboundsfor Oregon (11-4, 2-3).
The Cougars (7-8, 1-5) dressed only seven players because head coach PaulGraham sent six players back to Pullman, Wash., for violating an unspecifiedteam rule. In a written statement, Graham said it had nothing to do withcriminal activity.
Among the missing were starter Framecio Little and reserve Eddie Miller,Washington State's second leading scorer at 10.1 points per game.
Still, the Cougars made a game of it until a 24-10 second-half run gave theDucks a 62-43 lead.
