All game long the Oregon Ducks just couldn't find the shooting touch that propelled them to a 22-win season and when Devoe Joseph launched a 3-pointer at the buzzer, the ball sailed over the rim giving Colorado a 63-62 win in the Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament.

Just moments before Andre Roberson put up a lay in with just 10 clicks left on the game clock, but Oregon had an opportunity to win the game. However, even after a timeout Colorado's defense which had given the Ducks fits all night long, would not let Devoe Joseph get a off an uncontested shot.

Oregon was 27-for-68 in field goal shooting for the game including 5-of-15 in 3-pointers and was only 2-of-7 in long bombs, a tool that had served Oregon well all season long.
