Utah State vs. Utah Valley post game notes

Utah State had five players reach double figures but nobody played more than 28 minutes.

Pooh Williams had 15 points, Jared Quayle and Brian Green both had 13, Nate Bendall added a dozen and Tyler Newbold had 11.

If there was an offensive ‘low-light’ it was Tai Wesley’s five point outing. But considering the way the outside shots were falling and that USU gave their talented power forward a bit of a breather with just 25 minutes, those five points aren’t much to worry about from an Aggie fan perspective.

The win means Utah State has not lost back-to-back home games since the 1992-93 season — that’s 255 games for those of you keeping score at home.

USU has also won 20 consecutive home games against in-state opponents.

The 13 3-pointers were a season high, as was the 59.6 percent overall shooting percentage.

How good has the USU defense been? Utah Valley shot 44.4 percent and that’s the best any opponent has done against the Aggies.
