​It was a back and forth semi-final game between the Oregon Ducks and the Utah Utes.

The Ducks held the advantage for the last 11 minutes of the game, Utah playing catchup until the last minute. With 43 seconds left, Dakarai Tucker hit two free throws to bring Utah within 2 of the Ducks.

Oregon let the clock run down on their next possession until a charging foul was called on Oregon’s Joseph Young with 12 seconds left.

Delon Wright brought the ball down court and drew a foul from Jordan Bell with seven seconds left in the game. Wright made both free throws, the game tied at 64.

Joe Young, with seven seconds on the clock, brought the ball down the court and pulled up a three point shot about five feet behind the line. The shot went in with just two seconds left on the clock.

Wright attempted to match the score with a shot far beyond half court, but did not make it. Utah lost 67-64.

Utah Junior guard Brandon Taylor scored 16 points in the first half of the game and ended the night with six three pointers. Wright ended the night with 18 points and nine rebounds.

Utah may have been knocked out of the Pac-12 tournament, but still locked a No. 4 seed in the NCAA tournament with their win against Stanford in the quarter-final game.

Utah will find out where and who it will play on Selection Sunday, March 15th at 4 p.m. (MT) on CBS.
