Oregon vs. Utah final score: Ducks win on buzzer-beating dunk, 70-68

Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

Down as many as ten in the second half, Oregon notched the overtime win on a last-second steal and dunk from Damyean Dotson.

The No. 10 Oregon Ducks squeaked by the Utah Utes, 70-68, in overtime Thursday night, with Damyean Dotson scoring the game-winning bucket on an uncontested dunk with one second remaining.

With the score knotted at 68 and Utah looking for a buzzer-beater, Utes center Dallin Bachynski turned the ball over to Dotson. The Oregon guard tapped the ball to teammate Dominic Artis, who returned the favor and gave Dotson a clear path to the basket.

Oregon's perfect record was in danger throughout the game with Utah holding a ten-point lead six minutes into the second half. But the Ducks' offense got going in the second half and overtime behind Artis and Richard Amardi. The senior Amardi led the team with 14, also grabbing seven rebounds.  Leading scorer Joseph Young had just nine points, well below his season average of 20.2.

For the Utes, it was Jordan Loveridge that made it a game. The Utah guard had 21, enough to lead all scorers. Bachynski -- victimized by Dotson on the final play -- notched a double-double, scoring 11 points and collecting 12 rebounds.

Oregon improves to 13-0 on the season and 1-0 in Pac-12 play.
