SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah State Aggies’ late rally came up short as they fell on the road to Colorado State 77-72 on Wednesday night.

Utah State shot 45% from the field, 22% from the three-point line and 81% from the free throw line. The rebounding margin was very close with the Rams getting 32 rebounds, while Utah State pulled down 31 boards.

David Roddy led Colorado State with 24 points and six rebound on 9-of-13 field goal shooting. Isaiah Stevens dropped 22 points, while Chandler Jacobs and Jalen Lake added 11 points apiece.

The Rams shot 46% from the field, 37% from beyond the arc and 85% from the charity stripe.
