No. 8 Ducks rout No. 12 Utah 88-57 in Pac-12 title game

Posted: Updated:

Tyler Dorsey scored 23 points, Dillon Brooks added 18 and No. 8 Oregon turned the Pac-12 championship game into an early rout, rolling over No. 12 Utah 88-57 on Saturday night.

Oregon and Utah (26-8) were the Pac-12's top two teams during the regular season and held up through the conference tournament, setting up a matchup worthy of a neon marquee on the Strip.

Oregon (28-6) turned it into a Duck dynasty, putting on a defensive show to sweep conference regular-season and tournament titles for the first time.

The Ducks had 13 steals and scored 28 points off the Utes' 20 turnovers to win their fourth Pac-12 tournament title.

The dominating performance gave Oregon its best record after 34 games since 1938-39 and put it in position for a potential No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Chris Boucher had 15 points for Oregon. The Ducks scored 23 points off 17 offensive rebounds in the second-most lopsided game in tournament history.
