Pac-10

Henry Madden scored seven points in a crucial 3-minute stretch late in the game as Oregon came from 13 points behind in the second half Thursday night to stun No. 2 UCLA 82-72 at Eugene, Ore., in the Pacific-10 Conference men’s basketball opener for both teams.

The Bruins (6-1), who were in line to move to No. 1 after North Carolina’s loss to North Carolina State on Wednesday night, were outscored 14-3 during the final 4:33 and didn’t have a field goal in the last 4:51.

Oregon (9-1), off to its best start in 20 years, was led by Orlando Williams’ 18 points, the last four on free throws when UCLA coach Jim Harrick was called for two technical fouls and ejected from the game with 37 seconds to play. Harrick bumped referee Steve Wilson during the dispute.

The free throws gave the Ducks a 79-71 lead and ended any chance for a Bruins’ comeback.

Kenya Wilkins added 16 points and Aaron Johnson 15 for the Ducks.

Ed O’Bannon and Tyus Edney each scored 18 points for the Bruins.

UCLA committed 21 turnovers, seven by Edney, against Oregon’s pressure defense and had a hard time with the noisy, capacity crowd at 69-year-old McArthur Court, the Ducks’ first sellout in five years.

The Bruins led 38-34 at halftime and were up 56-43 on Edney’s layup with 14:44 to play.
