SALT LAKE CITY – Justin Bean scored 32 points and helped the Utah State men’s basketball team cruise past the UNLV Rebels.

The Aggies hosted the Rebels on Saturday, February 5.

USU beat UNLV, 90-75.

The Aggies and Rebels battled through the first half and Utah State took a two-point advantage in the locker room at the halftime break.

The back-and-forth fight continued throughout the opening minutes of the second half.

UNLV’s Bryce Hamilton buried a jumper to cut USU’s lead to 54-53 with 12:07 to play.

After Hamilton’s bucket, the Aggies went on a 16-0 run to blow the game open. USU’s burst and UNLV’s drought lasted more than five minutes.
