EUGENE, Ore. — After feeding off the home crowd in a dramatic comeback win three nights earlier, the No. 17 Oregon men's basketball team repaid the Matthew Knight Arena faithful Sunday night with some offensive fireworks.
The Ducks lit up the scoreboard in the first half Sunday against Utah, starting out the game 9-of-12 from three-point range on the way to an 80-62 victory before 8,542 fans. The win came three days after Oregon's second-half comeback to beat Colorado, which ended the team's two-game losing streak.
"These two games were must-wins for us, obviously, to keep in the hunt for a conference championship," UO senior guard Payton Pritchard said.
