Young shoots Ducks into Pac-12 title game

LAS VEGAS — Chris Young hit a long 3-pointer with 1.1 seconds left and scored 25 points, helping Oregon outlast No. 17 Utah 67-64 Friday night to earn spot in the Pac-12 Tournament championship game.

Both teams started hot and spent the night trading baskets in front of a raucous, largely pro-Utah crowd inside MGM Grand Arena.

No. 3 seed Oregon (25-8) led 63-60 with about a minute left, but Utah's Dakarai Tucker hit two free throws and Young was called for an offensive foul with 12 seconds left.

Delon Wright was fouled by Jordan Bell about 30 feet from the basket and the Utah senior hit both free throws, setting up Oregon's final shot.

Young took it, pulling up about five feet behind the 3-point line to send the Ducks into Saturday night's championship game against No. 5 Arizona.

Brandon Taylor had 24 points and Wright added 16 for Utah (24-8).
