Ducks dump slumping UW

Damyean Dotson and Joseph Young combined for 23 second-half points, sparking Oregon to a 78-71 win over Washington on Wednesday in Eugene.

Oregon’s Mike Moser had 20 points, Young 18 and Dotson 17 in coach Dana Altman’s 500th Division I win. Oregon shot 57 percent from the floor.

The Ducks (17-8, 5-8 Pac 12) won back-to-back games for the first time since their 13-0 start ended Jan. 5.

Perris Blackwell led Washington (14-13, 6-8) with 17 points, Andrew Andrews added 15 and Nigel Williams-Goss and Desmond Simmons had 12 apiece.

Oregon quickly erased a three-point halftime deficit as Young capped a 10-0 run with a 3-pointer to make it 46-39 Ducks.

Washington closed within one before Oregon stretched it out to a 58-52 lead on Dotson’s tip-in with 13:01 remaining.

The Huskies later scored five straight, with two C.J. Wilcox free throws tying the game at 60 with 9:11 left.

Oregon scored the game’s next five points and never trailed again.

(4) Arizona 67, Utah 63 (OT): Gabe York and Nick Johnson each scored 15 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 13 and the Wildcats (24-2, 11-2) escaped Salt Lake City with a victory over the Utes (17-9, 6-8).

(23) UCLA 86, California 66: Jordan Adams scored 28 points and the Bruins (21-5, 10-3) returned to the national rankings with an impressive victory against the Golden Bears (17-9, 8-5) in Berkeley, Calif.

Colorado 61, Arizona State 52: Askia Booker scored all but two of his 18 points during a second-half charge that carried the Buffaloes (20-7, 8-5) past the Sun Devils (19-7, 8-5) at Boulder, Colo.
