EUGENE, Ore. -- Jacob Young scored a season-high 23 points and Oregon beat No. 3 UCLA 84-81 in overtime Thursday night to give coach Dana Altman his 700th career victory.

Will Richardson added 12 points as one of three Ducks in foul trouble. Oregon (10-6, 3-2 Pac-12) won its fourth in a row. The Ducks swarmed the court and their loud celebration in the locker room echoed throughout a mostly empty Pauley Pavilion.

Johnny Juzang scored 23 points for the Bruins (10-2, 2-1). Their second loss of the season ended a five-game winning streak.

The teams traded baskets early in overtime. Young scored to put Oregon ahead by two. Jaime Jaquez Jr. missed a pair of free throws that would have tied it. Young scored again to give the Ducks an 83-79 lead.

Myles Johnson scored for UCLA before Richardson made one of two free throws for an 84-81 lead. Juzang's potential tying 3-pointer missed. Jules Bernard got the rebound and put up a jumper that Da'Vion Harmon got his hand on as time expired.

UCLA forced overtime on Jaylen Clark's steal and baseline layup that tied it at 73l with 16 seconds left.

No. 2 GONZAGA 110, BYU 84

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Drew Timme scored 30 points on 13-of-14 shooting and Gonzaga beat rival BYU to extend the nation's longest home winning streak to 61 games.

Andrew Nembhard had 22 points and 12 assists, and Julian Strawther added 20 points for Gonzaga (13-2, 2-0 West Coast), which shot 69% in the game and made 11 3-pointers. Chet Holmgren added 12 points, seven rebounds and five blocks.

Alex Barcello scored 19 points to lead BYU (14-4, 2-1), which was the last WCC team to beat Gonzaga in February of 2020. The Zags have won 23 conference games in a row since, also the longest streak in the nation.

No. 5 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 81, OREGON STATE 71

LOS ANGELES -- Chavez Goodwin had his second double-double of the season (20 points, 12 rebounds), Drew Peterson added 15 points and Southern California rallied in the second half to defeat Oregon State.

The Trojans (14-1, 4-1 Pac-12) dropped their first game of the season Tuesday at Stanford and trailed by 10 during the second half against the Beavers before coming back. USC didn't grab its first lead until midway through the second half and didn't get firm control of the game until the final three minutes.

Warith Alatishe's layup gave the Beavers a 71-70 advantage with 3:55 remaining before the Trojans scored the final 11 points. Isaiah Mobley scored five straight points, including a pair of free throws after Alatishe's fifth foul with 3:41 remaining, to put the Trojans up for good.

Jarod Lucas led Oregon State (3-12, 1-4) with 27 points, including six 3-pointers.

No. 6 ARIZONA 76, COLORADO 55

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Azoulas Tubelis and Justin Kier scored 14 points, and No. 6 Arizona overwhelmed Colorado in the second half.

The Wildcats (13-1, 3-0 Pac-12) dominated early, let the Buffaloes back in it and used a big run to start the second half to pull away. Arizona shot 51% and had 20 assists on 29 field goals to match its best start since 2015-16.

Colorado (11-4, 3-12) recovered from its slow start in the first half, but couldn't bounce back from one in the second to remain winless in 11 all-time games at McKale Center. The Buffaloes had another rough shooting night from the perimeter, finishing 4 for 20 from 3. Colorado is shooting 28% from the arc the past six games.

Former Arizona signee K.J. Simpson led Colorado with 17 points.

NO. 13 WISCONSIN 78, NO. 16 OHIO STATE 68

MADISON, Wis. -- Brad Davison scored 25 points and Wisconsin beat Ohio State for its sixth straight victory.

Tyler Wahl added 20 points, one point shy of his career high, for the Badgers (14-2, 5-1 Big Ten). Johnny Davis had 14 points and nine rebounds. Wisconsin was 10 of 23 from 3-point range.

E.J. Liddell scored 18 points for Ohio State (10-4, 4-2).

NO. 19 TEXAS TECH 78, OKLAHOMA STATE 57

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Kevin Obanor had 17 points and No. 19 Texas Tech backed up its consecutive wins over Top 10 teams with a victory over Oklahoma State in a makeup game.

Texas Tech (13-3, 3-1 Big 12) never trailed two nights after its 65-62 win at top-ranked Baylor that ended the nation's longest winning streak at 21 games. The Red Raiders beat then-No. 6 Kansas in their previous home game last Saturday.

Bryce Thompson had 14 points for Oklahoma State (8-7, 1-3).

DEPAUL 96, NO. 20 SETON HALL 92

CHICAGO -- Jalen Terry scored 28 points, David Jones added 24 and DePaul beat Seton Hall.

Javon Freeman-Liberty also scored 12 points for the Blue Demons (10-6, 1-5 Big East) in easily their biggest victory of the season. Freeman-Liberty, the conference's leading scorer, was injured early in the second half, limping off the court while favoring his right leg. He returned, but played sparingly down the stretch.

Jared Rhoden led Seton Hall (11-4, 2-3) with 25 points. Bryce Aiken added 22.
