Halftime update: Oregon 41, UCLA 32

UCLA got burned from outside as Jonathan Loyd, Damyean Dotson and Carlos Emory combined for a ridiculous 78 shooting percentage from 3-point range. The trio has 35 of Oregon’s 41 points, and the Ducks have found a groove after coughing the ball up eight times in the first eight minutes. The Bruins are shooting 32 percent from the field as star Shabazz Muhammad opens the game with another slow start. The freshman has just three points on 1-of-3 shooting, and was hit with a questionable charge call that had Ben Howland tossing his suit jacket off in anger.

Travis Wear leads the team with eight points and five rebounds. Point guard Larry Drew II also looks much better on offense after going scoreless against Arizona’s Nick Johnson. He has seven points on 3-of-5 shooting and four assists.
