Taking a look at Coast Radio Sports…
Travis Wear’s putback with 5.3 seconds remaining gave the UCLA Bruins a 70-68 victory over the slumping Oregon Ducks last night at Matthew Knight Arena. Joseph Young had 25 points for the Ducks who have now lost six of their last seven games following a 13-game winning streak to start the season. Things were every bit as close in Corvallis as Roberto Nelson’s go-ahead basket with 25-seconds remaining in overtime lifted Oregon State past USC 76-75. Nelson wound up with 24 points. The Trojans’ Pe’Shon Howard had a chance to tie it with 9-tenths of a second remaining, but missed a free throw; Oregon State rebounded and it was over.
