Oregon Knocks (4) Arizona from the Ranks of the Unbeaten

Oregon forward E.J. Singler had 14 points, seven rebounds and seven assists as the Ducks handed 4th ranked Arizona its first loss of he season 70-66, Thursday.
Arizona (14-1) was trailing by twelve with less than three minutes to play, but cut the deficit to three on a Nick Johnson three-pointer with 50 seconds left.
With the Wildcats still down three, and 10 seconds left in the game, Oregon guard Johnathan Loyd stole the ball from Johnson and was fouled. Loyd hit one of two free throws to seal the game.
“It means a lot…you know number three in the nation or number four, one of them, I don’t know. Their first loss,” Loyd said. “It felt good.”

Top ranked Duke and 2nd ranked Michigan are the only remaining undefeated teams.
