Utah 60, Oregon 58: In one of the worst-played games of the tournament, the "Runnin'" Utes overcame frigid shooting to beat the Ducks. Utah ultimately won the game at the free throw line and from beyond the three-point arc; Nick Jacobsen hit two of three free throws with 14 seconds left to win the game after Oregon player Ian Crosswhite missed two of four in the final two minutes, in a contest where the winning team shot 37.5% on its three-point attempts, but only 23.7% inside the arc. Luke Ridenour, playing what was probably his final college game, missed 11 of his 14 shots from the field, and committed the unnecessary foul on Jacobsen to set up the loss. Utah now has to play Kentucky, a team they lost to four times in the 1990's, in the second round Ugh !!
