EUGENE, Ore. -- Kennedy Burke had a career-high 29 points and UCLA came back from a 22-point deficit to knock off No. 2 Oregon 74-69 on Friday night.
Burke was 12-of-17 from the field and had seven rebounds for the Bruins (17-10, 10-5 Pac-12), who won for the eighth time in the past nine games. Japreece Dean added 14 points and Michaela Onyenwere had 12.
UCLA outscored the Ducks 36-14 over a large portion of the second half to lead 68-60. Oregon pulled to within 70-69 on Sabrina Ionescu's 3-pointer with 34 seconds left, but the Bruins scored the final four points at the foul line.
Erin Boley led the Ducks (24-3, 13-2) with 20 points, Ionescu had 18 and Maite Cazorla 13. Oregon was playing without junior forward Ruthy Hebard, who injured her right knee in Monday night's 67-62 loss at No. 12 Oregon State.
It was the first back-to-back losses for the Ducks since they dropped three in a row to end the 2016-17 season, a span of 71 games.
Oregon made 10 of its first 15 shots to lead 23-12 after one quarter. The lead grew to 22 points behind 13 from Boley before the Bruins scored the final seven points of the first half to trail 42-27.
UCLA gets its first victory of the season over a top-10 team with an impressive comeback from a sluggish first half. The Bruins also broke a five-game losing streak against the Ducks.
Oregon struggled to cope without the inside presence of star forward Hebard and her 69.0 percent shooting, second in the nation, against a projected NCAA tournament team. The Ducks need one win to clinch at least a share of their second straight Pac-12 regular-season title.
