EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Devoe Joseph scored 21 points and Oregon made 15 3-pointers in a 94-48 rout of Utah Saturday to end the regular season.

Carlos Emory also scored 19 and Garrett Sim added 13 points for the Ducks (22-8, 13-5 Pac-12), who locked up third place in the conference and secured a bye in the first round of next week's Pac-12 tournament.

Jason Washburn scored 26 to lead the Utes (6-24, 3-15), who went 0-12 on the road this season.

This one got ugly for Utah real fast as the Ducks went up 34-2 in the first 13 minutes of the game. Oregon finished off the half with four straight 3-pointers to lead 52-14 at halftime.

Joseph finished 8 for 9 from the floor with six rebounds and five assists. Overall, Oregon shot 56.5 percent from the field, including 65.6 percent in the first half.
