LAS VEGAS — Carlos Emory scored 20 points, Johnathan Loyd added 19 and Oregon pulled away from No. 21 UCLA 78-69 to win the Pac-12 tournament championship Saturday night at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Oregon (26-8) shook off a shaky start with superb perimeter shooting, pulling away in the second half after the Bruins made a run.
Arsalan Kazemi had 12 points and 12 rebounds, and the Ducks hit 7 of 14 from 3-point range to win their third Pac-12 tournament title.
UCLA (25-9) couldn't keep up with the hot-shooting Ducks without freshman Jordan Adams, who sat on the bench with a boot on his right foot after breaking it in the semifinals against No. 18 Arizona.
Larry Drew II had 14 points and six assists, but had five turnovers for the top-seeded Bruins, who may have lost a chance to play in the West Regionals at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
