MALIBU, California (Ticker) -- The speed of Luke Jackson and Luke Ridnour eventually waved good-bye to Pepperdine.
Jackson poured in 27 points and Ridnour added 15 as the No. 5 Oregon won its sixth straight game to start the season with a 105-90 victory over the Waves.
Oregon (6-0) used its warp-speed transition game to outrun its shorthanded opponent. The Ducks placed five players in double figures and never trailed after Robert Johnson's two baskets snapped a 59-59 tie four minutes into the second half.
Jackson used the contest to showcase his astounding athleticism. He rose high for a lefthanded jam in the first half and did a 180-degree turn for a reverse dunk with just under 14 minutes remaining.
"I was fortunate enough to get a steal and show a little athleticism," said Jackson about his lefty jam. "I'm just happy to get out of here with a win."
That dunk by Jackson capped an 11-3 run by Oregon for a 70-62 lead. Pepperdine stayed close and got within 82-79 on a free throw by redshirt freshman David Patten.
Ridnour drained a 3-pointer before Oregon freshman Ian Crosswhite scored seven straight points. Crosswhite's three-point play made it 92-79 with 4:48 remaining.
"We knew (Crosswhite) was a great player last year when he redshirted," Johnson said. "It was just great for him to go out and show everyone how great he is."
The win was sweet for Oregon coach Ernie Kent, a former coach in the West Coast Conference at St. Mary's. Kent was well aware of the difficulties of playing at Firestone Fieldhouse.
"It was a tough win," Kent said. "I won here my last year at St. Mary's, it went to triple overtime."
Pepperdine (3-3) had a three-game winning streak snapped. The Waves have just eight scholarship players, including forward Glen McGowan, who made his season debut after knee surgery and had just seven points.
The Ducks improved to 30-7 record when both Jackson and Ridnour score in double figures.
"I love their team," said Pepperdine coach Paul Westphal, a former NBA coach in Phoenix and Seattle. "They are a fun team to watch. I think both Lukes are big-time college players with an excellent future in the NBA."
Johnson had a career-high 19 points and 10 rebounds and Crosswhite's 19 points was a season high. Jackson had five assists and Ridnour handed out five.
Oregon shot a sizzling 74 percent (20-of-27) in the second half and finished the game at 60 percent (36-of-60). James Davis nailed four 3-pointers for all of his 12 points as the Ducks drained nine.
"We ran out of big guys," Westphal said. "They started to pound it inside. We got a little tired."
Jimmy Miggins scored 24 points to lead Pepperdine and freshman Alex Acker added 16. The Waves shot a blistering 57 percent (20-of-35) in the first half to stay within 52-50 at halftime.
Pepperdine led by as many as seven points in the first half at 33-26 on a basket by Boomer Brazzle with 9:29 remaining. The Ducks used a 13-2 spurt that featured six free throws by Jackson for a 39-35 edge.
"I have to give a lot of credit to Pepperdine," Jackson said. "They played really well, they shot the lights out."
Terrance Johnson's 3-pointer and Miggins' layup cut the deficit to 94-86 with just over three minutes to go. Crosswhite scored five points around another basket by Miggins to seal the win.
The Ducks' athleticism also caused the Waves to be out of position throughout the game, resulting in an abundance of trips the line. Oregon shot 86 percent (24-of-28) at the free-throw line as Jackson made 9-of-11.
"Our chemistry is unbelievable," Kent said. "The only thing our team cares about is winning basketball. It's beautiful to see."
Oregon was the first Pac-10 Conference team to play at Firestone Fieldhouse since Pepperdine hosted Washington State in November 1985.
