Ducks Sweep Bruins at Pauley

Oregon season has gone through many twists and turns but the bright spot has been the Ducks' success in a place that has traditionally been the hardest court for Oregon. However behind Tajuan Porter's 29 points, including a 3-pointer that put the Ducks out front with just seconds to go, Oregon swept the UCLA Bruins behind a 70-68 win at Pauley Pavilion.

Porter connected on seven 3-pointers to help hold off the Bruins, who rallied from a 14-point deficit.

Oregon, now 14-14 for the season and 6-10 in Pac-10 play was led by Porter's 29 while Jeremy Jacob added 19 plus pulled down 10 rebounds.

Michael Roll was the high scorer for UCLA with 25.

NOTES

- Oregon's last sweep of UCLA was back in the 2002-03 season, which came as part of back-to-back sweeps (2001-02 season as well) and a five-game winning streak against the Bruins (from Jan. 31, 2002 through March 14, 2003).

- The last time Oregon won all four regular-season meetings with the Los Angeles schools came during the 2001-02 season.

- The Ducks' last win at Pauley Pavilion was a 96-91 overtime win on Jan. 30, 2003.

- Oregon's 71.4 percent shooting from behind the 3-point arc marked a season-high (10-of-14).

- Porter's 11 made field goals matched a season-best total (at Washington State, 11 FGs).

- Porter's halftime total for points (16 on 6-of-12 field goals and 4-of-6 on 3-pointers) was a season-best.

- Porter's four first-half 3-pointers was also a season-best (previous high was three which happened on four occasions this season).
