SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah basketball and the Pac-12 Conference finalized the final week of the regular season, playing two games in the first week of March.

Both games for Utah basketball will be at home inside the Jon M. Huntsman Center. The Runnin’ Utes will host Oregon State on Wednesday, March 3 at 5 p.m. MST on either ESPN2 or ESPNU. Then they will host the Arizona State Sun Devils on Saturday, March 6. Time and broadcast information will be determined at a later date.

If the schedule stays the same and isn’t altered due to COVID-19, Utah will have played 19 of their 20 conference games this season. The Utes had both games against Arizona State postponed due to COVID-19 issues at the time of both scheduled contests. They were able to make up one of the two games. The only game Utah will not have been able to play on their original schedule is a road game at Arizona State.

Utah’s home game against Oregon State was originally scheduled for Wednesday, January 6. The Arizona State game at the Huntsman Center was scheduled originally for Sunday, February 7.

The Runnin’ Utes have not played Arizona State this season, who are currently 7-11 overall and 4-8 in Pac-12. Utah lost to Oregon State in Corvallis last week, 74-56. The Beavers are 11-11 overall and 7-9 in conference play.

The Utes will wrap up their regular season with four straight home games beginning on Thursday, February 25 against UCLA. Tip-off is at 6 p.m. MST and will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
