TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- It's been a pretty good week for Oregon in the state of Arizona.
Three days after the football Ducks routed Colorado in the Fiesta Bowl, the basketball Ducks won at Arizona for the first time in 16 years, 90-80.
The 15th-ranked Wildcats talked all week about revenge for their 30-point loss at Eugene on Dec. 22, the most one-sided defeat in coach Lute Olson's 19 seasons at Arizona.
But Oregon (10-3, 3-0 Pac-10) took the lead for good just 4:40 into Friday night's game on the first of Luke Ridnour's career-high six 3-pointers. The Ducks led by as many as 17 points in the first half and 22 in the second.
Only a 3-pointer by Will Bynum with 29.3 seconds to play prevented it from being Arizona's worst home loss of the Olson era.
Ridnour, a sophomore, also had career bests of 23 points and 10 assists.
"The best game he's played for us so far," Oregon coach Ernie Kent said.
