EUGENE, Oregon (Ticker) -- Luke Jackson's final home game at MacArthur Court was one to remember.

Jackson scored 14 points to move into a tie for second place on the school's all-time list as Oregon got past George Mason in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament, 68-54.

Andre Joseph made 5-of-9 3-pointers and scored 22 points for Oregon, which closed the first half with a 16-6 run for a 39-28 halftime lead.

The Patriots made the first basket of the second half, but the Ducks restored their double-digit lead and maintained it the rest of the game.

Oregon (17-12) advanced to play Notre Dame in the quarterfinals Thursday at South Bend. Jackson should move past Anthony Taylor (1,939) into sole possession of second place behind Ron Lee, who has 2,085 points.

A senior, Jackson was taken out of the game with 35 seconds remaining and the roaring crowd gave him a standing ovation.

George Mason (23-10) was led by Terry Reynolds with 14 points.
