Feb. 27, 2010
LOS ANGELES (AP) -Tajuan Porter scored 29 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 49.6 seconds remaining, and Oregon beat UCLA 70-68 Saturday to end a six-game losing streak at Pauley Pavilion.
Porter's seventh 3-pointer snapped a 65-all tie and came after the Bruins (13-15, 8-8 Pac-10), in their final home game of the season, rallied from a 14-point second-half deficit.
UCLA's Jerime Anderson committed a turnover with 27 seconds left, and Jeremy Jacob then made two foul shots on four attempts to clinch the victory for the Ducks (14-14, 6-10). Michael Roll's 3-pointer with less than a second remaining completed the scoring.
Jacob matched a career high with 19 points and had 10 rebounds.
