The Utah Runnin' Utes (14-5, 5-2 Pac-12) host the No. 10 Oregon Ducks (18-2, 7-0 Pac-12) tonight at the Huntsman Center at 8:30 p.m. MDT. The game will be televised on Fox Sports 1. This is a pivotal matchup for the Runnin' Utes if they want to make the NCAA Tournament. A win tonight would give them a huge boost in RPI and show that this Utah team is not the same team that struggled early in the season. A big part of Utah's surge in Pac-12 play is the midseason additions of forward David Collette and guard Sedrick Barefield.
Each team could have a key player out with Collette (concussion) and Oregon forward Dillon Brooks (ankle) both questionable for tonight's game.
This has been the week of upsets in college basketball. Numbers 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 have all gone down this week. Can the Runnin' Utes continue the trend and down the No. 10 Ducks? We will find out tonight.
