EUGENE, Ore. — Carlos Emory scored 21 points and No. 24 Oregon completed the season sweep of the Civil War series with an 85-75 victory over Oregon State on Thursday night.
Arsalan Kazemi had 17 points and 12 rebounds, Tony Woods added 16 points and Johnathan Loyd scored 12 points for the Ducks (23-6, 12-4), who took a half-game lead in the conference over idle UCLA.
Oregon trailed 41-34 at halftime and was down 51-46 near the midpoint of the second half before going on an 18-3 run to take a 64-54 lead with 8:59 to play.
Woods scored seven points during that stretch and point guard Dominic Artis, who missed the previous nine games with a foot injury, gave the Ducks the lead for good with a three-pointer that made it 55-52 at the 11:29 mark. Roberto Nelson scored 31 points for the Beavers (13-16, 3-13) and Devon Collier added 14.
BERKELEY, Calif. — Allen Crabbe had 15 points and 11 rebounds, Justin Cobbs added 12 points and seven assists, and California overcame a sluggish start to overpower Utah 64-46 for its sixth straight win.
The highest scoring duo in the Pac-12 helped the Golden Bears (19-9, 11-5) reel off 21 straight points to seal their longest winning streak since opening the season 6-0. They held Utah to its lowest scoring output of the season, including more than 10 minutes without a basket to go ahead by 16 points early in the second half.
Jordan Loveridge had nine points and 11 rebounds for the Utes (11-16, 3-12), who have lost five of six while struggling to find their shooting stroke.
