A bad start for the Pac-12 in the NCAA Tournament got worse on Saturday as the 6-seed Utah Utes were not only beaten, but blown out by the 11-seed Gonzaga Bulldogs.

That leaves the Oregon Ducks as the only Pac-12 team left remaining in the tournament, and we're not even to the Sweet Sixteen yet. Oregon is slated to play a ninth-seeded St. Joseph's team on Sunday at 6:40 p.m. MST. Our friends over at Addicted To Quack previewed the game, if you're interested in seeing what the Ducks are up against.
