EUGENE—The No. 8 Oregon Ducks women’s basketball team built a huge lead, saw it slip away, and then emphatically regained their mojo in overtime to defeat No. 10 UCLA 101-94 on Monday night.

A nationally televised game that was billed the most important of the season in the Pac-12 delivered on the hype, and Oregon’s win gives it sole possession of first place in the Pac-12 with two games to go.

The Ducks, at 14-2, lead No. 16 Stanford by a game, and UCLA and No. 12 Oregon State by two.

Oregon raced out to a 19-point lead, only to see it erased with less than five minutes to play in the fourth quarter.

The Bruins then took a 90-87 lead with 2:18 remaining.

The Ducks, however, would force overtime after Sabrina Ionescu connected on a free throw and UCLA center Lajahna Drummer missed a potential game-winning layup as time expired.

Ionescu then took over in the overtime period, scoring six of her 23 points to seal the Oregon win.

The Ducks also received a 25-point outburst from true freshman Satou Sabally, 24 points from Maite Cazorla and a 14-point, 11-rebound night from Ruthy Hebard, who extended her NCAA record of consecutive made field goals to 33 in the second quarter.
