The Oregon Ducks are just one win away from clinching their first conference title since 2002, but can the Ducks win both games at Colorado and Utah to guarantee themselves an outright Pac-12 regular-season title?
The Ducks have won five of their last six games and by doing so, they have kept themselves in a position to win the Pac-12 regular-season title.
A meeting with Colorado on Thursday night is going to be difficult. The Buffs play tough at home and are not an easy team to take down. Not to mention, the Buffs already defeated the Ducks once on Feb. 7, in Eugene.
What will be different this time around, though, will be that freshman guard Dominic Artis will be in the lineup.
If the Ducks win both games this week, they will clinch the outright Pac-12 regular-season title. UCLA is currently 12-5 in conference play and trail Oregon by a 0.5 game after being upset by Washington State on Wednesday night.
If Oregon were to drop one game this week, they could potentially share the Pac-12 regular-season title with UCLA. UCLA, of course, would have to win at Washington if this scenario were to happen.
The Ducks appear to have momentum on their side though,, and they will find a way to win both games this week.
Here are five reasons why the Ducks will take the Pac-12 regular-season title:
