UCLA Bruins guard Abramo Canka (1) defends Oregon Ducks guard Will Richardson (0) during the first half at Pauley Pavilion on Sunday.

Oregon’s win streak against UCLA ended Sunday afternoon as a late shooting slump doomed the Ducks.

Oregon made just three field goals in the final 10 minutes, allowing the No. 21 Bruins to turn a close game into a 65-56 Pac-12 men’s basketball victory in Los Angeles.

The Ducks (4-5, 1-1 Pac-12) had won four straight against the Bruins (7-2, 2-0), including an 84-81 overtime win against No. 3 UCLA at Pauley Pavilion last season that gave Oregon coach Dana Altman his 700th career victory.

This time around, the Ducks’ 56 points equaled their season low despite shooting 49% from the field (24-for-49).

Forward Quincy Guerrier led Oregon with 15 points and point guard Will Richardson scored 13 and had five assists, but no one could snap the Ducks out of their struggles in the second half.
