The Wildcats self-imposed a one-year postseason ban, including the Pac-12 tournament, following a NCAA investigation.
The Ducks, in the midst of seven games in 13 days to finish the season because of COVID-19 makeups, have won three straight and 8 of 9. They were 8 of 12 from 3-point range in the first half, shot 57% (12 of 21) overall in the second half and finished 18 of 22 from the foul line with just seven turnovers.
James Okinjo scored 19 points and had eight assists for Arizona (17-9, 11-9) and Azuolas Tubelis added 12 points. The Wildcats were outrebounded 37-29, only the second time they were beaten on the boards this season. The first was in a 63-61 loss to Oregon.
Duarte scored 13 points in the first half when the Ducks used a late 10-0 run to take a 40-30 lead. Oregon was 8 of 12 behind the 3-point line but just 5 of 22 (22.7%) inside the arc. Arizona made 6 of 13 from distance and shot 52%.
Omoruyi scored 13 points in the first 11:19 of the second half to spark the Ducks. Arizona only shot 39% (11 of 28) after the break.
The Ducks have another makeup game when UCLA visits on Wednesday before they close the regular season at Oregon State on Saturday.
