Erik Kangas added 18 points for the Golden Grizzlies (1-1), who ended the Ducks (1-1) 16-game nonconference winning streak at McArthur Court.
Jones made 13 of 23 shots including a baseline fade-away jumper over Oregon's Drew Wiley with eight seconds left in OT to put his team up 82-77.
The junior guard also had seven rebounds. LeKendric Longmire scored a career-high 18 points, all in the first half for the Ducks, who couldn't get coach Ernie Kent the school record of 213 wins.
