Oregon faces off against #17 USC at 6:00 PM PT on Fox Sports 1. With the Ducks slowly returning to full form after a slew of midseason injuries, they look to continue their 5-game winning streak with a win on the road. Oregon most recently took down Utah in a 67-64 win thanks to 15-point performances from both Chris Duarte and L.J. Figueroa. However, the Ducks will need a lot more help this time around if they want to defeat the 1st place Trojans.

Before falling to Arizona 81-72 on Saturday, USC had won 7 straight, and Freshman Forward Evan Mobley continued his tear through the conference. With only 4 losses on the season, both L.A. teams, the Trojans and the Bruins sit atop the conference and seem to be the favorites to battle it out for king of the Pac-12. The Ducks sit at 3rd, and tonight could be the indicator of whether those SoCal teams have anyone to worry about but themselves.
