[January 31, 2014]  EUGENE, Ore.  UCLA 70, Oregon 68: Travis Wear collected a loose ball and scored inside with six seconds left as the visiting Bruins rallied to beat the Ducks.

Joseph Young had 25 points and five steals and Jason Calliste scored 21 off the bench on 4-for-9 shooting from 3-point range for the Ducks (14-6, 2-6), who have lost six of seven after reaching as high as No. 9 in the coaches' poll. Richard Amardi contributed 13 points off the bench, while three starters for Oregon  Mike Moser, Ben Carter and Dominic Artis  went scoreless.

The Bruins led by 11 with six minutes remaining but Young got assertive after going scoreless the first eight minutes of the half and scored seven points in an 14-0 run that gave the Ducks a 68-65 lead with 1:12 left. Adams ended the run and tied the score at 68 on a three-point play and Calliste missed a 3-pointer on the other end, leading to Wear's winning basket.
