The Oregon Ducks take on the Utah Utes today in Jon M. Huntsman Center.  After losing to Colorado, the Ducks desperately need to win this game if they want to claim a share of the conference title.  Oregon won the first meeting between the two on February 9th, 73-64.

Rebounding should be the key for Oregon to win this game as Utah is not very good in that category.  Also the Ducks cannot afford to have another low shot percentage night.  The Ducks are now down to just three players averaging in double digits with E.J. Singler, Carlos Emory, and Damyean Dotson.  The ever efficient Arsalan Kazemi will need another big game to help boost Oregon into a W.

Utah sits in 3rd to last place in the conference, so it shouldn’t be too hard for the Ducks, but as we have seen in the Pac-12 this season, anything can happen -  especially on the road against a team that is coming off a win against Oregon State.

To watch the game, tune in to the PAC-12 Network at 11:30am PST.
