EUGENE, Ore. -- The University of Oregon women's basketball team watched their 16-point second-half lead evaporate as UCLA ended Saturday's Pac-10 contest on a 41-9 run to send the Ducks to a 91-75 loss in their final regular season home game in front of 2,892 fans at McArthur Court.
Jasmine Dixon had game-highs of 31 points and 20 rebounds for the Bruins (20-7, 13-3 Pac-10), helping the visitors sweep the season series for the first time since 2005-06. Doreena Campbell scored 20 points and Erica Tukiainen added 13.
Oregon (16-12, 7-9) was paced by 24 points from Micaela Cocks, one of four Ducks in double figures. Taylor Lilley needed 16 attempts to score 17 points, and Amanda Johnson and Nia Jackson chipped in 13 apiece. No UO player had more than four rebounds as UCLA held a 50-23 advantage on the boards, including a 24-8 edge on the offensive glass.
The Ducks looked to be in command, leading 66-50 on a Lilley layup with 14:12 to play before UCLA ripped off a 21-2 run to reclaim the lead, 71-68, with just under eight minutes remaining.
UO got within a bucket at 75-73 on a pair of free throws by Jackson at the six-minute mark, but would score only two more the rest of the way in losing a fourth straight conference game.
For the second straight game the Ducks held the lead at halftime, this time shooting nearly 53 percent (18-of-34) in taking a 50-46 edge at the break. Cocks led all scorers with 18 points on 7-of-8 shooting, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range.
Dixon had 15 points and nine rebounds for the Bruins in the opening period. UCLA trailed despite a 24-8 advantage in the paint and 14-2 lead in second chance points.
Cocks, Lilley and Lindsey Saffold were honored as a part of Senior Day prior to tipoff in what may possibly be their final home game in an Oregon uniform.
