The fans at Matthew Knight Arena will be treated to a game between the Utah Utes and the Oregon Ducks when they take their seats on Thursday.

ABOUT UTAH (17-8, 8-5 Pac-12): The Utes pulled off the home sweep thanks in large part to a 74-51 combined advantage on the glass, upping the team’s rebound margin to a plus-8.4 – tops in the Pac-12 and seventh nationally entering Wednesday. With 15 doubles-doubles on the season, forward Kyle Kuzma leads the team in scoring (15.7) and rebounding (10.2). Forward David Collette (14.6 points) and guards Lorenzo Bonam (13.0) and Devon Daniels (10.6) also own double-digit scoring averages with Collette, a transfer from Utah State, having scored at least 10 in all 15 games he played since becoming eligible in December.

ABOUT OREGON (22-4, 11-2): The Ducks’ defensive effort in an 81-70 win at USC – holding the the Trojans to 37.3 percent from the floor, including 22.2 percent from 3-point range, and forcing 16 turnovers – is what Altman is searching for. Leading scorer Dillon Brooks fouled out with three minutes to play but Tyler Dorsey (19 points) and Jordan Bell (12 points, 14 rebounds) helped pick up the slack. Brooks (14.9 points), Dorsey (13.1), Chris Boucher (12.0), Dylan Ennis (10.9) and Bell (10.8) are all averaging double digits with Bell (8.1 rebounds) and Boucher (6.6) pacing the team on the glass.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Ducks listed as 9½-point favorites versus the Utes, while the game’s total is sitting at 146 according to GTBETS.

In their last action, Oregon was a 81-70 winner on the road against Trojans. They covered the -3.5-point spread as favorites.

Last time out for Utah, they were a 85-61 winner as they battled Huskies at home. They covered in the match as a -15-point favorite.

Eighth-ranked Oregon enters its final homestand of the season trailing Arizona by one game for the Pac-12 lead. It begins Thursday night with a rematch against visiting Utah as the Ducks go for a sweep of the Utes.

Oregon is coming off a brutal three-game stretch in which it faced three of its fellow top-five teams in the conference in Arizona, UCLA and USC. Dana Altman’s Ducks won two of the three – only getting clipped by a late UCLA rally at Pauley Pavilion – but the Oregon coach said there’s work to be done in the three-plus weeks until Selection Sunday. “We’re not communicating well in our (defensive) matchups, and we’re not consistent,” Altman told the College Hoops Today podcast earlier this week. “Our play on the boards is inconsistent, (and) it needs to get better. We’ve got to get things right over the (next) month.” The 73-67 loss to Oregon on Jan. 26 was the first of three setbacks in a four-game stretch for Utah, but the Utes have since rebounded to sweep the Washington schools in Salt Lake City and are currently tied for fifth in the Pac-12 with USC.
