OR (20-6, 9-4 Pac-12) remained a ideal 14-0 at home this season and stayed tied with Colorado atop the Pac-12 standings with five games to go in the regular season. The over/under is set at 136.5 points according to NCAA basketball oddsmakers at 5dimes.

A layup and free throw by Chris Duarte with 3:30 left ended the dry spell.

Williams, whose 29 points and seven three-pointers were both career highs, looked as stunned as the Buffaloes (15-10, 4-10) and their fans after the basket.

Will Richardson scored 17 of his team-leading 21 points in the second half and No. 17 OR overcame a 20-0 run by No. 16 Colorado for a 68-60 win Thursday night in Eugene, Ore. Will Richardson led OR with 21 points on 7-of-15 shooting including 3-of-5 from 3-point range plus 4-of-4 at the charity stripe.

Evan Battey had 14 points and 11 rebounds and D'Shawn Schwartz added 14 points for Colorado. The Ducks answered with an 18-5 run, including eight points by Hebard who dominated inside and consecutive 3-pointers by Boley, to go up 38-24 - the Ducks' first double-digit lead of the game. Up 16-10 after an Anthony Mathis 3 with 11:20 left, the Ducks went 8 minutes and 50 seconds without a point.

Ducks are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than.400.

A day before New Year's Eve, Amanda used her Instagram page to debut a slightly slanted heart tattoo on her left cheek. That same year she started a fire in a stranger's driveway and was placed under psychiatric hold for 72 hours.

Ducks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite.

Colorado has reached 20 wins for the second season in a row, and seventh time under coach Tad Boyle. Branden Carlson and Timmy Allen each had 10.

Utah lost by a count of 70-51 Thursday night at Oregon State to drop to 14-10 overall and 5-7 in conference action. Utah trails Colorado by 3.5 games and is unlikely to come anywhere near making up that difference. The starting backcourt of Both Gach and Rylan Jones combines to average 20.7 points and 7.5 assists per game. The Utes fell that day, but a young team stood toe-to-toe with the best team in the Pac-12.

The Utes are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Utes are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games.
