LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State men’s basketball squad will head to Jamaica for a pair of games in 2019.

The Aggies will be participating in the 2019 Jersey Mike’s Jamaica Classic, along with Rhode Island, North Texas and LSU. Prior to the games played on the island, the Aggies will host a pair of home games as part of the tournament. The Jamaica games will be played on Nov. 22nd and 24th.

The games in Jamaica will be played in the Montego Bay Convention Centre and be broadcast live on the CBS Sports Network.

Utah State, led by head coach Craig Smith, enjoyed one of the best seasons in program history last year. The Aggies captured the Mountain West Conference regular season and tournament championship and were given their highest seed ever in the NCAA Tournament. As an 8-seed, they were dismissed by 9-seed Washington in the first round of the tournament.

Last season’s conference player of the year, Sam Merrill is slated to return for his senior year with the Aggies. Neemias Queta, who won conference freshman and defensive player of the year, has announced his desire to pursue an NBA draft evaluation, but could still return to the program if he decides to not go pro this summer.

More information on the Jamaica Classic can be found here.
