Joseph Young scored 26 points including the go-ahead 3-pointer in the second overtime, and Oregon outlasted short-handed UCLA 87-83 Thursday night.

The Bruins played without Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson, their top two scorers. The sophomore guards were suspended for the game for what first-year coach Steve Alford called a violation of team rules. They're expected to return to action Sunday night when the Bruins entertain Oregon State in their final home game of the season.

Jason Calliste added 18 points, Mike Moser had 12 points and a season-high 20 rebounds and Richard Amardi added 12 points for the Ducks (19-8, 7-8 Pac-12), who outrebounded the Bruins 50-38 while winning their fourth straight despite blowing a 15-point lead.

Freshman Bryce Alford led the Bruins (21-7, 10-5) with a career-high 31 points and six assists. Freshman Zach LaVine added 18 points and eight rebounds and Norm Powell scored 14 for UCLA.
