UCLA basketball: Ducks chase down Bruins for 75-68 victory
UCLA continued down the slippery slope in Oregon, blowing a 15-point lead in the first half during a 75-68 loss to the Ducks on Saturday.
The Bruins led, 37-24, at halftime, but Oregon scored the first nine points of the second half and methodically wore down UCLA.
E.J. Singler scored a career-high 26 points, with 23 in the second half. His rebound and layup with 7 minutes 46 seconds left gave the Ducks a 52-50 lead. They never trailed again.
UCLA falls to 10-9 overall and 3-4 in Pac-12 Conference play. Oregon is 15-5 and 6-2.
