EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — 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, 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. The Ducks led by as many as 13 points down the stretch.
Jason Washburn had 20 points and seven rebounds for the Utes (10-13, 2-9), who lost their second straight after a victory over Colorado, which upset Oregon 48-47 on Thursday night. The Buffaloes scored the final eight points to snap Oregon's 20-game winning streak at home.
