Oregon's Tyrone Nared (31) and E.J. Singler (25) force a fade away shot by Arizona State's Trent Lockett …

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 their first 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.
