2011 Pac-10 Tournament: No. 2 Seed UCLA Upset By No. 7 Oregon, 76-59

The UCLA Bruins beat the Oregon Ducks in both regular season matchups, but the third time wasn't a charm tonight at Staples Center. E.J. Singler led all scorers with 24 points -- on just nine field goal attampts -- leading the No. 7 Ducks to a 76-59 upset win over the No. 2 Bruins in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Pac-10 Conference Tournament. Oregon reached the semifinals of the Pac-10 tournament for the first time since 2007.

Tyler Honeycutt was the only Bruin to score in double figures, leading UCLA with 19 points. The Bruins shot just 35.2% on the night. Reeves Nelson led UCLA with 10 rebounds, but scored just seven points on 3-of-9 shooting in 28 minutes. UCLA fell behind to Oregon 38-24 at halftime.

Singler also led Oregon in scoring in last night's win over Arizona State, giving him 46 points in two tournament games. The Ducks will face the winner of the Washington vs. Washington State game in Friday's semifinals in the second game, with a tipoff of 8:30 p.m. PST.

Even with the loss, the Bruins are looking pretty solid for an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament. UCLA (22-10, 13-5) was projected as a No. 8 seed in the latest Bracketology predictions on SB Nation by Chris Dobbertean. That was before the Bruins' one-and-done performance in the Pac-10 Tournament, but they will still likely get a spot.
