Oregon 73, Utah 65

With a tournament bye on the line, the visiting Oregon Ducks made their first six shots to build a 16-3 lead over Utah, and led throughout, winning 73-65.

Five Ducks scored in double figures (sophomore guard Sydney Parrish led Oregon with 18), and six Ducks gathered five or more rebounds (sophomore guard Te-hina Paopao led with eight). That kind of balance is expected of Utah — instead, freshman guard Jenna Johnson scored 27 for the Utes, while no one else scored more than eight.

Oregon led 38-22 at the half, but Utah shot 61 percent in the third quarter to make it 54-51 to begin the fourth. Oregon out-rebounded Utah 11-4 in the fourth.

Oregon maintained their second place in the Pac-12 standings, while Utah dropped to #6. In the conference tournament beginning Wed., #7 UCLA meets #10 USC to determine a quarterfinal opponent for Oregon. #3 Washington St. awaits the winner of #6 Utah vs. #11 Cal.
