OR (12-6, 2-3) rallied from double-digit deficits three times, but couldn't muster a final comeback to leave the desert with a split between the Pac-12's two Arizona schools.
Alkins, who missed the Wildcats' first eight games with a broken foot, was rather nonchalant about the slam, laughing with teammates as he sprinted back on defense. That ignited the 16-3 run that finally put the game under control for the Wildcats.
California: The Bears will head back home to play Arizona on Tuesday.
"Our defensive effort and the consistent effort broke the game open", Miller said.
"It was a huge win, especially because OR is rolling right now", Alkins said. "We knew that it was gonna be a heck of a fight, and it was".

"I thought Malcolm was great, being able to guard Thompson and also being able to run the offense and take advantage of the ball movement", Kidd said. "Credit them. They played their butts off".
"But, when you turn it over as many times as we did, 17, and 10 in the first half you're shooting yourself in the foot".
One-time Washington commit Daejon Davis returned to his hometown and had 16 points, Reid Travis also finished with 16 points, and Stanford completed its first two-game road sweep in conference play in almost eight years with a 73-64 win over Washington on Saturday night. "Other than the turnovers we had some outstanding play, outstanding moments".
Amber Melgoza led the Huskies (6-10, 0-5) with 15 points and six assists, but she made just five of 18 shots from the floor as Washington connected on 21 of 61 attempts (34 percent). They either laid it in or got to the free-throw line.
"The last 4 minutes were the difference", said OR guard Payton Pritchard, who had 12 points and seven assists. "We didn't want to lose because we have to protect our home court, and especially because last time they came out here, they beat us". Last season, UA scored just 18 points in the first half of an 85-58 loss at Oregon. Arizona lost any hope for an upset by missing its first 12 shots of the third quarter to see a one-point halftime deficit balloon to 14. He had only his second double-double of the year vs. ASU, posting 12 points and 13 rebounds. After Ristic found himself in some early foul trouble and with OR going a bit small, Miller turned to senior and sometimes seldom-used power forward Keanu Pinder for some important minutes.
Won't expel sex offender
He said Neurauter has not been on campus since Tuesday, and has been advised not to return for the remainder of the term. Their excuse is that they have "no grounds" to expel the student - who is, if they missed it, a child sexual abuser.
Pinder said matching up with the Ducks was somewhat easier without Jordan Bell around this time, collecting two blocks and a steal in his 18 minutes. This type of win should bring motivation to a struggling WSU team. I don't know what the deal was, but we've got to do a better job. Foul trouble, illness, injuries, styles of the opponent. you just can't win with five. "... Our bench is continuing to develop, but Keanu gave us tremendous minutes on defense".
California: Cal has now dropped four consecutive games and will play a tough Arizona team who is up next on their schedule. "Seriously, 12 of 36 and I don't think we took a bad 3 all night". It's just once he got four fouls, Dana Altman is not gonna let him get away with playing with four fouls. "Without him we wouldn't be where we're at".
The result was an 82-72 win in the Breslin Center, a win that will go down as one of the best wins that anyone lands this season, a win that essentially locks MI into an NCAA tournament berth as long as they do what they're supposed to do the rest of the season.
The X-Factor for the Oregon Ducks is Paul White.
"The play before halftime I nearly had an out-of-body experience", Miller said.
