Good evening and welcome inside Wells Fargo Arena for Pac-10 Basketball, featuring the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Oregon Ducks. This is the final weekend of the regular season in college basketball.

ASU comes into the game with a 10-18 record overall, 2-14 in the Pac-10, while Oregon comes in with a 14-14 record, 7-9 in the Pac-10.

This could very well be a preview of next week’s Pac-10 Tournament play-in game, as ASU is the #10 seed and Oregon is currently the #7 seed.

Here are tonight’s starting lineups:

Oregon: Garrett Sim, Johnathan Lloyd, E.J. Singler, Tyrone Nared and Joevan Catron

ASU: Jamelle McMillan, Ty Abbott, Kyle Cain, Chanse Creekmur and Trent Lockett
