LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State Aggies rolled to an easy 84-57 win over the Eastern Oregon Mountaineers.

Though it was a blowout in the final score, the Mountaineers actually hung with the Aggies in the beginning of the game.

After Eastern Oregon’s Zane Wright drained one of two free throws, the Mountaineers trailed just 16-14 at the 10 minute mark of the first half.

From there, however, things got ugly as the Aggies finished the first half on a 29-12 run to take a commanding 45-26 lead at the break.

After the win was secured, the Utah State bench was emptied in the second half as all the entire roster found its way onto the floor in the game. All but two Aggies contributed to Utah State’s scoring explosion.

By The Numbers

Utah State’s Sam Merrill had a game-high 28 points with four 3-pointers made.

Neemias Queta had 13 points with seven rebounds while Jordan Bean came off the bench and scored 12 points in the win.

Aggie coach Craig Smith made history with the win. With a 10-3 record, he now has the best start to his first season as Utah State’s head coach in the program’s history.

Next Up

Utah State will next enter its conference schedule by hosting Air Force on Saturday. The game will begin at 7 p.m. and be broadcast online on the Mountain West Network.
