Ducks Bury Zona, Hand Wildcats First Conference Defeat; Home Winning Streak At 40, Now Tops In Division I

At Eugene, Oregon:

Tyler Dorsey scored 23 points on Saturday as the Oregon Ducks (21-3 overall, 10-1 in Pac-12 play; #13 in both the Associated Press and USA Today/Coaches polls) snapped the visiting Arizona Wildcats' (21-3, 10-1; #5 AP and Coaches) 15-game winning streak by handing the visitors their first conference setback of the season 85-58.

The decisive victory was the Ducks' 40th consecutive win at home, which is now the longest such streak in Division I, following Kansas' 92-89 overtime home defeat against Iowa State (the Jayhawks had won 51 straight at home).
