Sunday, they were saying "YES!" like they were Marv Albert.
Senior Shipp was 5 of 6 from three and dominated a key second half stretch on his way to 17 points, fellow senior Darren Collison added 22 points and No. 12 UCLA held off Oregon's second-half rally for an 83-74 victory on Sunday.
Sunday was a big turnaround for Shipp, who has been ice cold so far this season from three (8 of 37, 21%).
Shipp was not alone on the hot shooting early as seven different Bruins drained a three-pointer in the first half. The defense was again solid and UCLA was up 40-29 at the half.
But teams at home do not give up. The Bruins lost most of their 40-29 halftime lead when the Ducks went on a 9-2 run early in the second half.A three-point play by Joevan Catron started Oregon's rally and was followed by layups from Matt Humphrey and Catron and a runner in the lane by Porter that cut UCLA's lead to 46-43 with 14:48 to play.
Collison and Shipp helped UCLA (12-2, 2-0) keep its lead. Collison went 3-for-6 from the field and 7-for-7 from the free-throw line in the second half.
But the Bruins scored the next five points on a layup by Collison and a 3 by Shipp to extend the lead to 51-43.
