EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Malcolm Lee scored 18 points and UCLA made a barrage of 3-pointers late in the second half to hold off Oregon in a 67-59 victory Saturday.
Lee went 7 for 13 from the field and made three 3-pointers. Jerime Anderson also had three 3-pointers on the way to 15 points for the Bruins (11-6, 3-2 Pac-10), who went 9 for 24 from long distance and made five in the final 7:12.
E.J. Singler scored 15 points and Jeremy Jacob added 12 for the Ducks (8-10, 1-5), who were without leading scorer and rebounder Joevan Catron. The senior forward missed his third straight game with a strained calf muscle.
After trailing at halftime, the Bruins led for the final 9:12 following a 8-0 run that put them up 46-40.
Oregon came within two or three points of the lead on multiple occasions, but each time it seemed UCLA answered with a 3-pointer, including two by Lee.
