E.J. Singler had 21 points and No. 19 Oregon overcame a poor start to end its three-game losing streak with a 73-64 victory over Utah in Pac-12 men's basketball.
EUGENE, Ore. — E.J. Singler had 21 points and No. 19 Oregon overcame a poor start to end its three-game losing streak with a 73-64 victory over Utah on Saturday.
Damyean Dotson added 16 points for the Ducks (19-5 overall, 8-3 Pac-12), who had been on a slide after opening conference play with seven straight victories.
Oregon trailed 30-22 after the first half but pulled in front midway through the second and extended its lead to 53-45 on Carlos Emory’s tip-in with 6:32 left.
“We finally hit some shots,” Oregon coach Dana Altman said of the turnaround. “Dot(son) got on a roll there, E.J. hit a couple, and although we didn’t shoot a very good percentage, it was good to see the ball go through the net a little bit.”
