LAS VEGAS -- Tony Woods had 19 points, Arsalan Kazemi scored 11 of his 14 in overtime, and Oregon outlasted Washington 80-77 on Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament.
The tournament's third seed, Oregon (24-8) found itself in a fight from the start against the sixth-seeded Huskies. The Ducks stopped Washington from getting off a shot in the closing seconds of regulation and held on in overtime to reach Friday's semifinals against No. 10 seed Utah, which knocked off No. 2 Cal in overtime earlier Thursday.
A year ago, Washington (18-15) became the first team from a power conference to miss the NCAA tournament after winning the regular-season title, thanks to an opening loss to Oregon State in the Pac-12 tournament. The Huskies could be out of the bracket after coming up short again in this year's tourney.
C.J. Wilcox led Washington with 19 points, Scott Suggs added 18 and Abdul Gaddy had 14 with five rebounds and five assists.
Damyean Dotson had 17 points and E.J. Singler added 16 for the Ducks.
