Oregon basketball to host UNLV at the Moda Center this season

Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

The Ducks are returning to Portland for another exciting non-conference matchup, this time against UNLV. Earlier last week, it was announced that Oregon and UNLV will face each other on December 17 at the Moda Center in Portland.

The last time the Ducks played at the Moda Center was back in 2013 when Oregon defeated Illinois 71-64. The Ducks also played at the Moda Center back in 2010 when they lost 98-71 to the Blue Devils.

This will be a chance for the Ducks to get even with the Running Rebels. Last year, UNLV hosted the Ducks at home and pulled off a surprising 80-69 win. Oregon would recover though and of course go on to the Elite Eight while UNLV would go 8-10 in the Mountain West and finish the year 18-15.

No start time has been announced yet for the game. Back in 2010, it was an afternoon tip-off at 1:00 PM PT against Duke while against Illinois, the game started at 6:05 PM PT.
