Utah Men Continue To Struggle On Road, Falling To Oregon State

Mar 7, 2024, 11:26 PM

CORVALLIS, OR- The Runnin’ Utes are finishing up the regular season on the road in Oregon starting with the OSU Beavers Thursday night.

Utah is currently living life on the bubble and will need a strong finish to try and push themselves into NCAA Tournament consideration. The Runnin’ Utes did themselves a favor last Thursday beating Stanford in convincing fashion. Utah followed that performance up with another convincing win over Cal.

However, the Utes’ biggest issue through the season has been winning on the road with only one regular season win away from the Huntsman Center against UCLA.

The Utes got off to a quick start over the Beavers, but Oregon State came roaring back and went into the locker room with a comfortable 46-33 lead.

Utah chipped away at the Beaver’s lead a bit in the second half, but OSU continued to find opportunities to pull away, 92-85.

Look Ahead At Utah’s Schedule

Utah wraps up the regular season on Saturday, March 9 against the Oregon Ducks. Tipoff is set for 5:00 pm MT and can be viewed on Pac-12 Networks.
