Alleyne carries Oregon women past UCLA 67-65
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Jillian Alleyne scored the final 10 points, including a last-second layup to lift Oregon past UCLA, 67-65 to open the second half of the Pac-12 season Saturday.
The Ducks (9-11, 2-7 Pac-12) completed a season sweep of UCLA by holding the Bruins without a field goal after Corinna Costa’s jumper gave them a 64-60 lead with 3:39 remaining, and UCLA’s only point the rest of the way came on the first of two free throws by Costa.
Alleyne, who finished with season highs in points (30) and rebounds (25), opened her closing run with a three-point play and tied it at 65-65 with another three-point play.
Jordin Canada missed a jumper with 1:39 left for UCLA and Kari Korver and Nirra Fields both missed 3-point attempts. Fields got a steal with :29 left, but turned the ball over and Oregon called time out.
Fields finished with 15 points for UCLA (8-12, 4-5).
