The Oregon Ducks used a big fourth quarter to knock Arizona out of the Pac-12 Tournament as they won 70-63 on Friday night in Seattle's KeyArena.

The victory was the Ducks first-ever in the Pac-12 Tournament and snapped an eight-game losing streak dating back to 2008 in conference tournament-play.

LaBrittney Jones hit double-figures for the 25th time this season as she scored 23 points and grabbed six rebounds. 

With that, the outgoing-senior finishes 11th all-time in Arizona history with 1,263 career points and finished just one point behind Kirsten Smith for 10th all-time. She also finished with 688 career rebounds, which is eighth all-time.

Lucia Alonso had her best game in a while as she hit double-figures for the first time since Jan. 1. She scored 14 points on a career-high four made three-pointers. 

Malena Washington also chipped in 14 points for the Wildcats (14-16) whose first season under Adia Barnes ends with the loss.

Sabrina Inoescue led the Ducks (19-12) with 22 points while Ruthy Hebard had 21 with 12 rebounds.

Oregon will play 3rd seed Washington on Friday in the Pac-12 Tournament quarterfinals.
