Sim, Ducks hold off Arizona for rare desert sweep
OREGON 59, ARIZONA 57

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Garrett Sim scored 10 of his 12 points in
the second half, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:46 to
play, and the Oregon Ducks held off Arizona 59-57 on Saturday to
complete just their second sweep in the desert since the
Wildcats and Arizona State joined the conference 33 years ago.
Arizona (12-6, 3-2) rallied from a 17-point second-half deficit
to lead 56-54 on Nick Johnson's two free throws with 2:59 left.
But E.J. Singler made an inside basket to tie it, then Sim sank
his big shot as he fell to the court to put the Ducks (13-5,
4-2) up permanently.
Arizona's Brendon Lavender missed a 3-pointer in the waning
seconds. Teammate Kyle Fogg grabbed the rebound but missed a
short jumper as time expired.
