TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona broke the game open with a 17-1 second-half run, and the sixth-ranked Wildcats routed Oregon 90-56 to sweep the regular-season series.

The Wildcats won 80-62 when the teams met in Eugene, Ore., on Jan. 8.

After Oregon used an 8-0 run to trim Arizona’s lead to 56-46 with 13:06 to play, Wildcats junior guard Gabe York scored the first nine points of the 17-1 surge to quash the comeback. York knocked down two 3-pointers and added a transition three-point play to push the lead back to 19. He added a jumper late in the run.

Thirteen of York’s team-high 16 points came in the second half.

Oregon (14-7, 4-4 Pac-12) opened the second half by scoring eight of the first 10 points thanks to a pair of 3-pointers from guard Jalil Abdul-Bassit.

Arizona (19-2, 7-1) countered by attacking the paint, going on a 13-3 run with all 13 coming in the lane. Center Kaleb Tarczewski started things off with a hook shot that led to a three-point play, and forwards Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson got to the rim for the Wildcats’ next three field goals.
