Utah State opened Mountain West Conference play with a 2-0 record having beat San Jose State and Fresno State. Since then, the Aggies dropped three conference games before picking up a win over Nevada to move to 3-3 in MWC play.

USU guard Sam Merrill leads the Aggies with 16.9 points per game this season. He is shooting 40.7 percent from the field.

Neemias Queta is recording 11.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per contest this season.
