Recap


Oregon 64, Utah 45: Damyean Dotson and E.J. Singler scored 14 points apiece and the third-seeded Ducks advanced to their third Pac-12 championship game in Las Vegas.

Johnathan Loyd and Carlos Emory contributed 10 points apiece off the bench for Oregon (25-8), which will play top-seeded UCLA in Saturday’s final.

Brandon Taylor had 13 points and a season-high four steals and Jason Washburn finished with 12 points and nine rebounds for No. 10 seed Utah (15-18). Jarred DuBois, the leading scorer for the Utes who combined for 43 points in the first two tournament games, went scoreless for the first time this season, missing all eight of his field-goal attempts.

The Ducks dominated from the start, holding Utah to 31.6 shooting in the opening half while building a 29-15 lead. The Utes did not collect an offensive rebound in the opening 20 minutes and had more turnovers (eight) than field goals (six).

Oregon boosted its second-half lead to as many as 19 points before Utah managed to trim the deficit to eight with 9:43 remaining. Singler scored five unanswered points for the Ducks, however, and Utah never got back within 11.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Ducks are 2-0 in tournament championships, winning titles in 2003 and 2007. … Oregon freshman point guard Dominic Artis started his second consecutive game since coming off the bench following a nine-game absence because of a foot injury. He finished with five points and four assists. The Ducks are 18-2 with Artis as a starter. … Oregon kept itself in good position to qualify for the NCAA Tournament for first time since 2008.
