NCAA | Oregon overthrows UCLA in overtime for Dana Altman’s 700th victory | NBA

Bad starts this season, with six wins for as many defeats, the Oregon Ducks are taking off. Thursday night at UCLA, Dana Altman’s squad finally kicked off their season with a fourth straight victory, and a prestigious victory at Pauley Pavilion, snatched in overtime behind 23 points from senior Jacob Young.

Bad start in this match too, on a 14-6 from the locals including a big dunk from Jaime Jaquez Jr., the Ducks managed to resume the forward march to win away, starting in particular the 2nd half with a 5/5 3-pointer to pick up. But the Bruins also missed several very clear chances, with Jules Bernard who had the winning shot at his fingertips at the end of regulation time.

“We didn’t react well to adversity this year, but we did show progress [hier] evening “, enjoyed Coach Altman, in his 33rd season in Division I. “I’m very proud of the way we fought. »

If Johnny Juzang (23 points, 9 rebounds) assured, it was not the case of the pair Jules Bernard (13 points at 3/13) – Tyger Campbell (10 points at 3/10). Late in the game, Jaquez also missed two crucial shots… In short, too many mistakes for the Bruins!

Gonzaga crushes BYU

Certainly not as dominating as in recent years, Gonzaga nevertheless remains the number 2 in the country. And, last night against BYU, Drew Timme (30 points at 13/14 on shots) and his gang put up a few points on the i. Easy winners of their rival (110-84), the Zags were also able to count on Andrew Nembhard (22 points, 12 assists) and Julian Strawther (20 points).

With a 61st straight success at home, Gonzaga extends his incredible series of invincibility on his ground, without having had too much recourse to his nugget, Chet Holmgren, to 12 points, 7 rebounds and 5 blocks all the same (and who comes from signing an exclusive contract with the card brand Topps). The Zags are at 13 wins for 2 losses this season.

Arizona keep the beat

Struggling against Washington (and its zone defense forcing 21 stray balls) for their first game after an enforced 16-day break, Arizona found its bearings against Colorado (76-55). Azuola Tubeilis and Justin Kier both finished at 14 points to balance the attack of the Wildcats who were able to place the necessary boost in the 2nd half.

“We started the match well, with a good effort, but then we let our guard down a bit”, analyzed Tommy Lloyd. “The guys responded well in the second half, especially in defence. For us, there is no secret: defense is what launches our attack. »

The Arizona international squad was once again successful, with Tubeilis in the lead, but also 7 points and 9 rebounds from Christian Koloko, 13 points and 5 rebounds from Bennedict Mathurin or 10 assists from Kerr Kriisa and 12 points and 5 rebounds by Pelle Larsson off the bench. At 13 wins in 14 games, Arizona continues its great campaign for the first Coach Lloyd in charge.
