“We’re playing like a mediocre ball club,” Arizona coach Lute Olson said. “If we’re going to change that we need to play as a team.” Johnson, playing in his first game since serving a two-game suspension, put the Ducks up for good with a driving jumper in the lane that made it 66-64 with 3 minutes to play. A free throw by Adams cut Arizona’s deficit to one point, but Brooks followed with a free throw and Oregon closed out the final 2:34 on a 7-3 run. Hairston hit four 3-pointers in just over 4 minutes midway through the second half to lead the Ducks on a 16-3 run. His first 3-pointer at the 14:11 mark broke a 44-44 tie, and his layup with 8:44 left gave Oregon its largest lead of the game, 60-49. “Malik was on fire,” Brooks said. “That’s why we call him our stud. He hit some clutch shots; he played his heart out.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
