The University of Utah men’s basketball team scored only two points in the first 13 minutes of their last regular season game as they fell to Oregon 94-48 in the team’s largest defeat in school history.

The Ducks (22-8, 13-5 Pac-12) were able to go up 34-2 before Utah scored again and the Utes were unable to come back, despite Utah Center Jason Washburn’s 26 points. Oregon led 52-14 at halftime and scored a season-high 94 points and season-high 15 3-point shots.

Utah shot only 22.7 percent in the first half and 36.5 percent in the game. The team went 0-7 in the first half and 2-13 in the game from behind the 3-point line.

Utah (6-24) finished 0-12 on the road this season and 3-15 in conference play in their debut season in the Pac-12 Conference.
