LOGAN, Utah – Utah State forward Justin Bean received some unusual recognition by a national college basketball analyst.

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports wrote a piece that was posted on listing his top 10 “Glue Guys” in college basketball.

Bean is one of two Mountain West Conference players that was named to this list.

Here is what Rothstein said in his article about Bean.

“After serving as a marginal contributor last season, Bean has now emerged as an invaluable piece to the Aggies’ overall operation. The 6-7 forward has tallied 14 double-doubles in 19-20 and has had 20 games with 10 or more rebounds. Utah State wouldn’t be in the NCAA Tournament picture without him.”

The Aggies are currently on a 5-game winning streak while holding a 22-7 overall record and are 11-5 in Mountain West Conference play. They are tied for second place with Nevada in the standings. Utah State will play their final home game of the regular season on Tuesday night against San Jose State.

The other 9 players that were listed as the top glue guys in college basketball includes:

  • Mark Vital, Baylor
  • Marcus Garrett, Kansas
  • Trey Landers, Dayton
  • Kyle Young, Ohio State
  • Darryl Morsell, Maryland
  • Dwayne Sutton, Louisville
