Hoops GameDay Blog: Oregon vs Utah

Oregon heads into their Saturday night tilt with visiting Utah riding a three-game losing streak. Oregon will also be without starting point guard Dominic Artis for their fifth straight game. The Ducks will look to start a new home winning streak after having their 20-game winning streak snapped on Thursday against Colorado.

Oregon's 47 points on Thursday were the lowest points scored by an Oregon team since the Ducks scored just 42 points in 2010 at Oregon State.

Oregon currently sits second in the Pac-12 in a tie with Arizona State, but do hold a tie breaker in a scenario they both end up tied at the end of the regular season.

Utah is coming off a Wednesday night loss at Oregon State, 82-64. Against the Beavers Brandon Taylor scored a career-high 21 points while also matching his career-high of six assists. Jarred DuBois also scored 20 in the loss against Oregon State.
