Men's Basketball
Jan 4, 2020
After falling to an unranked opponent earlier in the week, No. 4 Oregon men's basketball was determined to avoid a similar fate on Saturday afternoon, defeating Utah 69-64 in Salt Lake City. The game came down to the final minute, with the Runnin' Utes pulling within three points. But Oregon played lock-down defense, holding Utah scoreless in the games' final 2:35 to seal the win. Three different Ducks, Payton Pritchard (19), Chris Duarte (14), and Will Richardson (14) scored double-digits in the win. Pritchard also notched four assists, moving him into second place on the Ducks all-time assists list with 576.
