Ducks end regular season on a roll

The Oregon Ducks ended their 2011-2012 regular season on a high note, crushing the visiting Utah Utes on senior afternoon in Eugene, 94-48. The result was never in question, as the Ducks (22-8, 13-5 Pac-12) used a 34-2 start to the game to cruise past the Utes (6-24, 3-15 Pac-12).

The Ducks had five players score in double-figures for the first time this season, led by Devoe Joseph who continued his hot streak with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists on 8-of-9 from the floor.

The Ducks jumped out to a quick 7-0 start on jumpers by Joseph and Sim. After a Utah bucket, the Ducks would go on a 27-0 run over the next eleven minutes. The Ducks hit 14 of their first 18 shots, and all six of their first three point attempts, en route to a 52-14 first half lead.

Carlos Emory played a big role off the bench, scoring a career high 19 points on 8-of-9 from the floor, while pulling down 6 rebounds. E.J. Singler notched his second double-double of the season, scoring 12 points and pulling down a team-high 10 rebounds.
