Sometimes when No. 1 teams end a Pac-12 Tournament game, there are moments of “amazement” and “dismay.”

UCLA looked distraught after surrendering a 10-point lead and then a three-point lead with six minutes to play against No. 5 Oregon on Thursday night. Moments later, Oregon’s Ruthy Hebard scored seven of her 32 points in the final two minutes to lead the Ducks to a 76-69 victory at the Galen Center.

“These kind of tournaments provide an opportunity for these little competitions to show the best in our league,” Oregon Coach Kelly Graves said. “There were big winos in our gym.”

There were also big basketball stars. Hebard and Sabrina Ionescu dominated on both ends of the court. The 6-foot-7 Hebard scored 19 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked two shots to lead Oregon (24-1).

Ionescu scored 17 points on six-for-seven shooting from the field and led Oregon in assists with 10.

“We were confident that we would get back in this game,” Ionescu said. “We played like we had nothing to lose.”

UCLA coach Cori Close gave credit to Oregon’s perimeter defense. UCLA shot 36.7% from the field.

“If you look at their starting five, they are all seniors,” Close said. “They’re experienced and play well together.”
