UCLA beats Oregon for fourth win in a row

Jaylen Clark and freshman Amari Bailey each scored 14 points and the No. 21 UCLA rallied in the final four minutes to win Oregon 65-56 for a fourth straight game Sunday at Pauley Pavilion.

The Bruins (7-2, 2-0 Pac-12) didn’t score much all game until they pulled away late.

They clung to a one-point lead and scored eight goals in a row to make it 63-54. Jaime Jaquez Jr. and Bailey had four points each, with Bailey capping the run with a two-handed dunk.

Bailey came up with a flying block from Brennan Rigsby with just under a minute to go and Quincy Guerrier missed a three-pointer for the Ducks (4-5, 1-1) who the Bruins had won four straight.

After Jaquez grabbed two free throws, Guerrier missed another three-pointer from the right touchline with Jaquez in the face in the dying seconds of the Bruins’ fourth straight win.

Guerrier led the Ducks with 15 points and Will Richardson had 13 points.

Jaquez, who averages 18 points, finished the game with 12 points after early foul problems.

David Singleton hit a three-pointer to give the Bruins a 49-47 lead before Rivaldo Soares scored to equalize. From then on, the teams went back and forth. The Ducks came within 1 of Lok Wur’s two free throws.

Six down, the Ducks lost nine straight points to regain the 47-44 lead. Guerrier made a three and another basket, and Richardson chipped a basket as part of the sprint.

After being limited to six minutes, Jaquez returned to start the second half and showed why the Bruins missed him in foul trouble. He hit a 12-4 run that gave UCLA their first lead (33-31) since the game began. Jaquez scored and then stole the ball in a game crowned by Bailey’s one-handed dunk.

The Ducks led 27-21 at the break after holding the Bruins to a season-low in points in the first half.
