TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Oregon Ducks beat the Arizona Wildcats 95-89 in overtime Friday night to advance to the Pac-12 Tournament championship game.

Oregon overcame a critical mistake at the end of regulation that allowed the Cats to force the extra period. Mark Tollefsen had a chance to win the game for UA late in the second half. The senior needed to make two free throws with .04 second to play to lift the Cats to an improbable comeback victory.

Tollefsen however made just one as he missed the first before knocking down the second.

Elgin Cook led the Ducks with 22 points. Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey each added 19. Gabe York paced the Wildcats with 21 points.

The Ducks will head for Saturday's title game against Utah. The Utes beat California Friday night in a game that also went to overtime.

Arizona (25-8) was trying to advance to the tournament championship game for the fifth time in six years.
