California came to the Pacific Life Pac-10 men's basketball tournament with two goals for its quarterfinal game against Oregon: Beat the Ducks and not expend too much energy doing so. Top-seeded Cal had no problems Thursday, cruising to a 90-74 victory at Staples Center that advanced the Golden Bears into a Friday night semifinal against UCLA.

After watching Oregon shoot only 37% from the field in a loss to USC on Friday, UCLA Coach Ben Howland suspects that the Ducks might come up with a better effort when his team plays at McArthur Court this afternoon. "They missed shots they're not going to miss against us," Howland said. The 12th-ranked Bruins still remember their visit to Eugene last season when they needed 26 points and 18 rebounds from Kevin Love to prevail in a close game.

In the dog days of February, Oregon lost five of six games in one stretch. Now the Ducks are a victory from the Final Four, but it would have to be a big one. They face defending NCAA champion Florida next.

Tajuan Porter, Oregon's 5-6 starting point guard, is the Ducks' leading scorer after five games, highlighted by a 38-point performance against Portland State in which he made a school-record 10 three-point baskets.
