    EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Reserve UCLA guard Brian Morrison had 15 points and four others scored in double-digits for the Bruins, who edged Oregon 70-62 Sunday night.

    Morrison's fifth 3-pointer of the game gave the Bruins (7-3 overall, 1-1 Pac-10) a 59-54 lead with 2:36 to play after the Ducks (9-2, 1-1) had trimmed a 15-point second-half deficit to two.

    Morrison's basket also sparked a 9-0 run for UCLA to help seal the victory, the Bruins' first in Eugene since 2001.

    Dijon Thompson and Michael Fey scored 13 apiece for UCLA, while Arron Afflalo and Jordan Farmar added 12 points each.

    Mitch Platt tied a career-high with 15 points for Oregon, which was held to its lowest point total this season. Aaron Brooks also scored 14 for the Ducks.

    The Bruins opened its first double-digit advantage of the game midway through the first half when Thompson hit a layup and 3-pointer to fuel a 13-4 run and an eventual 30-20 lead.

    Up 37-30 early in the second half, Morrison drained a pair of 3-pointers to start a 12-4 run that led to a 49-34 lead with 12:09 to play.

    But then the Bruins' shooting touch went cold as they registered just one field goal until Morrison's late 3-pointer, while Oregon scored 18 of the next 23 points to get to within two points, 54-52 with 5:51 to play.
