SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Pac-12 conference awarded No. 19 Oregon a victory over UCLA due to a forfeit. Both teams were scheduled to play on Friday.
UCLA was reduced to an eight-man rotation due to injuries, but the Bruins suffered another setback on Wednesday when junior guard and leading scorer Charisma Osborne was blown off the ground after sustaining a non-contact knee injury in the third quarter. against No. 8 Arizona.
The Pac-12 schedule adjustment policy for this season allows a game to be rescheduled or declared a no contest if a team has less than the minimum roster available for a scheduled contest (at least seven scholarship players and a coach). The policy, however, is only related to the unavailability of players and coaches due to COVID-19.
Per NCAA policy, there will be no adjustments to overall records. Oregon (12-5) improves to 5-1 in the league and UCLA (9-5) drops to 4-3 in the conference.
UCLA’s next game is scheduled for Sunday at Oregon State while Oregon hosts Southern California.
