SALT LAKE CITY — Danielle Rodriguez hit a layup with two seconds left to give Utah a 66-64 win over Oregon on Friday night after the Utes had squandered a 10-point lead in the final 92 seconds.

After two free throws by Rodriguez made it 63-53 with 1:32 to play, Lexi Petersen started the rally with a layup at 1:26. The Utes missed two free throws, and then Petersen made a layup and was fouled by Cheyenne Wilson, who also received a technical. Katelyn Loper made one of two free throws on the technical before Petersen completed her three-point play. That made it 63-59 with 1:03 to go.

Utah made one of two free throws before Petersen scored again. She then hit a 3-pointer after a Utah turnover to tie the game with 18 seconds left. The Utes called a timeout at 10 seconds to set up the winner. Rodriguez took the inbounds pass near midcourt, drove down the left side, made a spin move and hit a 3-foot floater.

Wilson led Utah (9-17, 3-12 Pac 12) with 16 and Taryn Wicijowski scored 13 of her 15 in the second half.

Petersen and Jillian Alleyne had 18 each for the Ducks (12-14, 5-10), with Alleyne grabbing 13 rebounds.
