In a city filled with spectacle and neon lights, the most exciting action in Las Vegas on Saturday night was inside the MGM Grand, as UCLA and Oregon squared off for the Pac-12 Tournament Championship.

The streaking Bruins sought revenge on the Ducks, who delivered them their first conference loss of the season in January in Pauley Pavilion in the team’s only matchup this year, but were unsuccessful.

Oregon, led by forward Carlos Emory's 20 points and stellar three-point shooting in the first half that gave the team a nine-point lead at halftime, overcame the top-seeded Bruins and won their first conference tournament since 2007.

Both UCLA and Oregon are now tied for all-time conference tournament championships, as the Ducks have now secured their third in program history.

The trophy was on the line in Vegas on Saturday night and it's now in the hands (or wings, rather) of the Ducks.
