Cats clinch share of Pac-12 title with UCLA loss


The Oregon Ducks survived blowing a 15-point first half lead and a buzzer-beater by UCLA's David Wear that forced overtime to beat the Bruins 87-83 in double overtime Thursday night at Pauley Pavilion in Westwood.

The loss by the Bruins assures the 3rd ranked Arizona Wildcats of a share of the Pac-12 Championship.

UA can win the title outright with a home victory Sunday over Stanford. It would be the program's 13th championship of the Pac-10/12 era and 26th overall.

UCLA played without starters Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson who were suspended by head coach Steve Alford for violation of team rules.

Joseph Young led the Ducks with 26 points.
