LOGAN, Utah – Utah State’s Alphonso Anderson scored 21 points to help the Aggies cruise past North Carolina A&T, 81-54.

Justin Bean notched a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Sam Merrill scored a quiet 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting. He also had 6 rebounds and 5 assists.

The Aggies were clicking from the field, shooting 55 percent, but didn’t shoot the three-pointer as well, making 5 of their 15 attempts from beyond the arc. They shot just 60 percent from the free throw line. Their defense was strong though, limiting North Carolina A&T to 35 percent from the field and from downtown.

Brock Miller added 11 points on three triples, after making a career-high seven threes in their last game against Denver. Utah State dominated the paint outscoring North Carolina A&T 46 to 16.
