Utah 72, No. 25 Oregon 62:
Jason Washburn recorded 20 points and 13 rebounds in his final home game as the hot-shooting Utes denied the Ducks a share of the Pac-12 title.

Senior Jarred DuBois added 15 points, five assists and five rebounds while freshman Jordan Loveridge registered 14 points and seven rebounds for Utah (13-17, 5-13), which made 11 consecutive field goals in the first half and finished 56.6 percent from the floor. The Utes will be the No. 10 seed in the Pac-12 tournament.

E.J. Singler scored 21 points as Oregon (23-8, 12-6), which has a first-round bye in the conference tournament, slipped to the No. 3 seed. Tony Woods added 13 points and eight rebounds for the Ducks, who were 13-for-22 from the free-throw line and missed six of their last nine attempts.

Utah scored the first nine points and made 13 of its first 16 shots en route to a 30-20 lead with 9:03 left in the first half. Washburn scored 15 points prior to the break, including a three-point play with seven seconds left to give the Utes a 44-30 lead at intermission.

Washburn recorded another three-point play 33 seconds in the second half before the Ducks began to chip away, and they cut the deficit to 60-54 on Singler's 3-pointer with 7:35 remaining. Utah responded with a 10-2 run - ignited by a pair of DuBois buckets - to seal their fourth home victory in their last five games.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Oregon freshman G Dominic Artis had six points and four assists while shooting 2-for-9 from the field as he continues to work his way back from a foot injury which sidelined him for nine games. He has scored 15 points in three games since returning to the lineup. ... Singler scored 23 points in his previous three games combined. ... Oregon was bidding for its first Pac-12 regular-season title since 2002.
