The Arizona Wildcats found out Thursday they can win the Pac-12 Conference regular-season title outright with a win over Stanford on Sunday at McKale Center.

Oregon beat UCLA 87-83 in double overtime late Thursday at Pauley Pavilion to put the Bruins three games back in the loss column, meaning the Wildcats have clinched a share of the league title with three games left.

UCLA was playing without standouts Kyle Anderson and Jordan Adams, who were suspended for an unspecified violation, but the Bruins rallied at the end of regulation and received a game-tying three pointer at the buzzer from David Wear to send the game into overtime.

UA is 13-2 in conference play with its final home game left against Stanford, plus a road swing to Oregon State and Oregon next week. UCLA is 10-5 and will face Oregon State on Sunday at the same time UA faces Stanford. All other Pac-12 teams have six losses or more.

So if either UA wins or UCLA loses Sunday the Wildcats will have their first outright Pac-12 title since 2010-11.
