WESTWOOD (AP) — Malcolm Lee scored 25 points as UCLA defeated Oregon 64-54 Thursday night to win its fourth in a row and eighth in nine games.
The Bruins (17-7, 8-3 Pac-10) got 10 points each from Lazeric Jones and reserve Jerime Anderson, whose 3-pointer put them ahead for good with 8:43 remaining.
Joevan Catron scored 15 points and Jay-R Strowbridge added 14 for the Ducks (12-12, 5-7), who were coming off an 81-76 upset of then-No. 20 Washington and had won four of their previous five games.
Catron’s jumper tied the game for the last time at 41-all. From there, Anderson scored five in a row, then Lee scored six of UCLA’s next eight points to put the Bruins ahead 54-46.
