EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Stephanie Mavunga scored 23 points and career-highs of 16 rebounds and 6 blocked shots and No. 11 North Carolina overwhelmed Oregon in the second half for a 76-59 win on Sunday.

The Ducks (1-1) had a nine-point lead in the first half and were up 29-28 at the break but Alisha Gray had six points as the Tar Heels (4-0) scored the first 12 points of the second half and never slowed down.

Gray finished with 18 points and Xylina McDaniel added 14 for the Tar Heels, who shot 56 percent in the second half.

Jillian Alleyne had 18 points and 17 rebounds and Lexi Bando added 14 points but Katelyn Loper, who had eight 3-pointers and 33 points in Oregon's opening win, was just 2 of 11, all from behind the arc. The Ducks shot 30 percent.

Mavunga had seven offensive rebounds and Alleyne had eight.
