Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Oregon extended its winning streak to six games, but it was hardly a cakewalk.
Damyean Dotson and E.J. Singler each shined in the second half to help the 21st-ranked Ducks escape the Galen Center with a 76-74 victory over a USC Trojans team that played its first game under interim coach Bob Cantu.
Dotson scored 13 of his 16 points after halftime, while Singler supplied 12 after being held to two in the first half.
Tony Woods, Carlos Emory and Dominic Artis finished with 10 points apiece for Oregon (15-2, 4-0 Pac-12). The Ducks have won their first four conference games for the first time since 1973-74, when the league was called the Pac-8.
J.T. Terrell had 22 points for the Trojans (7-11, 2-3), who nearly forced overtime but saw their rally fall short in Cantu's debut.
Cantu took over for Kevin O'Neill, who was fired Monday.
