EUGENE, Ore. -- E.J. Singler scored 14 points and Oregon overcame a slow start to beat No. 4 Arizona 70-66 on Thursday night, handing the Wildcats their first loss of the season.
Dominic Artis, Carlos Emory and Tony Woods had 10 points apiece for the Ducks (13-2, 2-0 Pac-12), who have won 17 straight home games, including all 11 this season.
Mark Lyons scored 21 and Solomon Hill added 16 points to lead the Wildcats (14-1, 2-1), who entered as one of three undefeated teams in the country.
It appeared they were going to stay that way when the Wildcats jumped out to an 11-0 lead. But it was all Oregon from there, as the Ducks outscored Arizona 41-19 the rest of the first half to lead 41-30 at the break.
Arizona trimmed its deficit to 48-42 early in the second half but got no closer until Lyons made a 3-pointer with 1:18 to play that made it 67-63.
