Ucla Sweeps Arizona

Associated Press

Pac-10 men

Charles O’Bannon scored a season-high 26 points and J.R. Henderson made a turnaround jumper in the lane with 18 seconds left as No. 24 UCLA edged No. 11 Arizona 66-64 Thursday night in Tucson, Ariz.

The Bruins kept pace with Southern Cal in pursuit of their third straight league title. Coupled with an 84-78 overtime win in Los Angeles on Jan. 18, it was UCLA’s first sweep of Arizona since Wildcats coach Lute Olson took over in 1983.

Henderson finished with 10 points for UCLA, which ended Arizona’s 11-game home winning streak.

Miles Simon scored 24 points for Arizona.

Arizona led 33-32 at halftime, but the Bruins led most of the second half after O’Bannon hit a baseline jumper and a 3-pointer in the first 2-1/2 minutes.

Arizona’s Mike Bibby, who missed his first eight shots, hit a 3-pointer that tied it at 57 with 4:09 to go, and Bennett Davison gave the Wildcats a 62-60 lead with 2:39 left.

Henderson tied it with a turnaround shot, then Arizona regained the lead before O’Bannon tied it again on a baseline jumper with 59 seconds left.

After Arizona turned it over on offensive foul with 45 seconds remaining, UCLA set up for the go-ahead basket by Henderson.

Arizona had a chance to tie in the closing seconds, but a close-in shot was blocked by UCLA.
