Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - Damyean Dotson scored 19 points, including the game's final four, to lift the Oregon Ducks past the 18th-ranked UNLV Runnin' Rebels, 83-79, in the semifinals of the Global Sports Classic.

Carlos Emory added 16 points, his last two coming on a bank shot in transition that tied the game, 79-79, with just over a minute remaining.

After Justin Hawkins missed a 3-pointer from the corner, Dotson spun left in the lane and got a bucket to fall, then hit the clinching free throws following an Anthony Marshall miss.

The outcome ended UNLV's 20-game winning streak at Thomas & Mack Center and advanced the Ducks (5-0) into the early tournament championship game against No. 22 Cincinnati on Saturday.

Anthony Bennett led UNLV (2-1) with 22 points, while Katin Reinhardt netted 18 behind 4-of-8 shooting from long range.
