PAC-12 Tournament

Duck Men Are No. 1 Seed in Western Region

Mar 13, 2016

The University of Oregon men's basketball team continued their storybook season Saturday night winning the Pac-12 championship in Las Vegas. The 8th ranked Duck's defeated the University of Utah Utes 88 to 57.

This is the fourth Pac-12 title for the Ducks. Tyler Dorsey scored 23 points, Dillon Brooks added 18. Defense played a big role. Oregon had 18 steals and scored 23 points off 17 offensive rebounds. It was the second-most lopsided game in tournament history. The Ducks' record is the best after 34 games since 1938.


The University of Oregon’s bid to repeat as PAC-12 tournament champions was squandered Thursday night by the same team they defeated last year to win it all.  UCLA blew the game open in the second half to win by 19. 


The game was a back and forth affair for most of the first half, but UCLA got hot shooting and opened up a 20 point lead with five minutes go.  They held on to win 82-63.  Oregon’s Joe Young scored a game-high 29 points, but no other Duck broke into double figures.

It was a Civil War battle Wednesday night in the first round of the PAC-12 Tournament.  The number Ducks played the Beavers in Las Vegas, and the U of O walked away with the victory. 

Oregon and Oregon State had already met twice this season, with each team chalking a win.  The Ducks entered the PAC-12 Tournament with momentum though, having won their previous seven games.
