Eugene, Ore. • If Utah is going to take to the road and upset No. 19 Oregon, the Utes will have to do so without a member of their playing rotation.
Freshman guard Justin Seymour has been suspended for the game for violating team rules. No specific reason was given for Seymour’s benching.
It’s another hit for Utah who needs all the depth it can get to deal with a Ducks team with height and athleticism on both ends of the floor.
The Utes are 2-8 in the Pac-12 entering the matchup. They will be facing a wounded Oregon team that’s lost three consecutive game, including a 48-47 heartbreaker to Colorado at home on Thursday night.
The matchup — played at Matthew Knight Arena — will be televised live on the Pac-12 Networks.
