Nick Johnson scored 18 points, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 14 points and 10 rebounds in place of injured starter Brandon Ashley, and No. 2 Arizona grinded out a 67-65 victory over Oregon on Thursday night.
Coming off its first loss of the season, last week at Cal, Arizona (22-1, 9-1 Pac-12) labored offensively in its first game without Ashley, who is out for the season with a foot injury.
As they have so many times this season, the Wildcats pulled out a victory by turning up the defensive pressure late to overcome a 4-for-16 effort from 3-point range and 16 missed free throws.
T.J. McConnell hit a 3-pointer with 90 seconds left and Johnson went 5 of 6 from the free-throw line in the final minute to prevent the Wildcats' first losing streak of the season.
Oregon (15-7, 3-7) led late in the second half but stumbled down the stretch.
Saint Mary's 77, Loyola Marymount 58: Beau Levesque scored 17 points with a career-high 14 rebounds and five assists to help the Gaels (17-7, 7-4 West Coast) snap a two-game road losing skid.
Kerry Carter was 7 of 12 from the field, including four 3-pointers, and led Saint Mary's with 20 points. Stephen Holt scored 17 points with four assists, and Brad Waldow added 12 for the Gaels, who scored the first 14 points and never trailed against the Lions (11-13, 3-9).
BYU 89, Santa Clara 76: Tyler Haws scored 27 points as the Cougars (16-9, 8-4 WCC) cruised to a 27-point second-half lead in handing the Broncos (10-15, 3-9) their seventh straight loss.
Haws, who entered the game as the nation's third-leading scorer, hit 9 of 12 from the field and scored more than 20 points for the fifth straight game.
Brandon Clark and Jared Brownridge scored 16 points apiece for Santa Clara.
USF 74, San Diego 67: Cole Dickerson scored 21 points, including an emphatic dunk with 30 seconds left, and Kruize Pinkins added 14 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Dons (15-9, 8-4 WCC) past the Toreros (13-12, 4-8).
San Diego led 49-46 before a 7-0 spurt gave the Toreros a 10-point lead with 9:22 to play. USF scored 22 of the next 27 points, opening up a 68-61 lead with 57 seconds left.
Cincinnati 63, Connecticut 58: Sean Kilpatrick scored 26 points, and Justin Jackson led a second-half surge that rallied the No. 7 Bearcats (22-2, 11-0 American Athletic) to their 15th straight win, over the No. 22 Huskies (17-5, 5-4).
Michigan State 82, Penn State 67: Adreian Payne scored 12 points in his return from a foot injury, and the No. 9 Spartans (20-3, 9-1 Big Ten) toppled the Nittany Lions (12-11, 3-7).
Michigan State got back Payne, but Keith Appling, who has been dealing with a wrist problem, sat out, and Branden Dawson is still out because of a broken hand.
Arizona State 86, Oregon State 82: Jermaine Marshall scored 25 points, including seven in overtime, as the Sun Devils held off the Beavers.
Jahii Carson added 23 points, six rebounds and six assists for ASU (17-6, 6-4 Pac-12).

Utah 78, Washington 69: Brandon Taylor scored 20 points and Delon Wright added 19 to help the Utes (15-7, 4-6 Pac-12) end a three-game losing streak and beat the Huskies (13-10, 5-5) at home for the first time since 1970.
BYU 87, Santa Clara 80: Nici Gilday's 29 points weren't enough to keep the Broncos (7-16, 3-8 WCC) from falling to the Cougars (18-5, 8-4) in overtime. Gilday's 3-pointer with three seconds left sent the game into overtime tied 74-74.
Jo Paine scored 15 points but was the only other Santa Clara player in double figures.
USF 78, San Diego 74: Zhane Dikes scored a career-high 28 points, including 16 of 22 from the free-throw line, as the Dons (9-14, 4-8 WCC) snapped a 13-game losing streak against the Toreros (18-5, 7-5).
