LOS ANGELES, Calif. — The Oregon Ducks finished up play at the 2013 Pac-12 Championships at the Los Angeles Country Club in sixth place.

Oregon (362-370-369-372=1473) shot 73-over for the three-day tournament, 17 strokes behind fifth-place Arizona State (+56).

California (+6) won its second-straight Pac-12 Championship. After beating the Ducks in a playoff one year ago, the Golden Bears held off second-place UCLA (+15) by nine strokes to capture the title again in 2013.

California's Max Homa (-9), who shot a course-record 61 on day one of the championships, won the individual tournament by five strokes over teammate Michael Weaver (-4).

Oregon sat in ninth place after two rounds before moving up three spots in the third round, settling into sixth entering Wednesday's final round. Rak Cho paced the Ducks today, shooting a 72 (+2) in the final round. Cho's round featured four front-nine birdies and four total for the day. He finished in a tie for 15th in the overall standings.

After carding a 70 (E) to lead the Ducks in the third round, freshman Sulman Raza shot a 74 (+4) today to wrap up his tournament. Raza, who had a birdie on the front nine and back nine today, placed 20th overall.

Freshmen Brandon McIver and Zach Foushee shot a 75 (+6) and 76 (+6), respectively, to cap their first-ever trip to the Pac-12 Championships. McIver placed in a tie for 35th, while Foushee landed in a tie for 39th.

Senior Robbie Ziegler carded a 75 (+5) today and finished in a tie for 53rd, while sophomore Jonathan Woo, who won the Duck Inviational in late-March, placed in a tie for 60th overall after shooting a final-round 78 (+8).

The Ducks have finished in the top-six in four out of their last six tournaments. They will begin play in the NCAA Regionals on May 16. The site of Oregon's NCAA Regional will be announced in the near future.
