UO release – LAS VEGAS — A strong second half propelled the Oregon men’s basketball team past UCLA on Thursday and into the semifinals of the Pac-12 Conference Tournament. The Ducks’ hopes of making the NCAA Tournament remained alive for at least one more day, after Thursday’s 68-66 win over the Bruins in the Pac-12 quarterfinals at T-Mobile Arena. Oregon more than likely needs to win the conference tournament to qualify for the Big Dance, and the UO men are now two wins away from doing just that after settling down in the second half to beat UCLA. “I tell my guys all the time, just believe,” said UO senior Jermaine Couisnard, whose two free throws with 10.3 seconds left Thursday proved to be the game-winning points for the Ducks. “Regardless of what game we have, just believe — shoot the ball like you just made five in a row, six in a row. Just keep believing.” The Ducks overcame a five-point halftime deficit, using an 8-0 run midway through the second half to take a lead that ultimately reached 10, before UCLA scored nine straight to make it a one-point game with less than 2 minutes left. But N’Faly Dante capped a 22-point night with a hook shot along the baseline to end the Bruins’ run, and Oregon survived a potential game-tying runner at the buzzer to advance to a semifinal matchup Friday against Arizona.
