LOS ANGELES (AP) - No. 24 UCLA lost to No. 21 Oregon, 76-67, before 12,254 in Pauley Pavilion on Saturday afternoon, snapping the Bruins' 10-game winning streak.

UCLA (15-4, 5-1 Pac-12) dropped its first game in Pac-12 play after having opened conference action 5-0 for the first time since 2003-04.

Norman Powell added 11 points starting in place of Shabazz Muhammad, who scored all of his 10 points in the first half. Kyle Anderson had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

"We really wanted this one and it hurts equally as much [as the loss to Cal Poly]," Wear said.

That two-point upset on Nov. 25 set UCLA on a path to losing two of three games, including its most recent defeat to unranked San Diego State on Dec. 1.

"If anything, we're going to be more motivated to get back at practice because we hate this feeling," Wear said. "We know we got to bring it this week in practice and come out prepared to get two wins."

Next up for UCLA is a visit to No. 7 Arizona on Thursday night.

"The key for us is how we bounce back going into what is the toughest road trip for anyone in the Pac-12 this season," UCLA head coach Ben Howland said. "This will be a real good test for us."

UCLA led by three points at halftime after shooting 55 percent in the opening half. The Bruins led by five early in the second half and tied the game at 52-52 before the Ducks' defense stepped up and sent UCLA's shooting into a tailspin.

"We just haven't put two halves together," Powell said.

Tony Woods scored 18 points and missed only one shot, Dominic Artis added 14 points, and Arsaian Kazemi had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Ducks (16-2, 5-0), who improved to 5-0 in Pac-12 play for the first time in 39 years.

After barely getting by USC, 76-74, on Thursday night, the Ducks won their seventh straight and 11th in their last 12. They are 5-0 in league play for the first time since 1973-74 when the conference had eight teams. Back then, they lost their next game to then-No. 1 UCLA at Pauley Pavilion.

Down by five, the Ducks ran off eight straight points to take a 49-46 lead while the Bruins went 5:17 without scoring. They tied the game at 52-all on a jumper by Wear.

From there, the Ducks slowly built a 62-56 lead, capped by Kazemi's layup off his own offensive rebound.

Powell hit a 3-pointer and Anderson made two free throws to pull the Bruins within one with 3:30 to play, but they came no closer in front of 12,254, the second-largest crowd of the season at the newly renovated arena.

Muhammad didn't start as punishment for being late to practice on Friday and he sat the first five minutes. The freshman scored 10 of UCLA's final 12 points to put them ahead 40-37 at halftime.

During Muhammad's run, the Bruins took their largest lead of six points before E.J. Singler's 3-pointer with 6 seconds left cut down the advantage.

The Ducks led by four points early in the game, despite committing four turnovers and going 7 for 20 from the field in the first nine and a half minutes.
