The beginning of the game was a close one. The Broncos and Aggies traded inside baskets. That was until a wide-open three-pointer from Taylor Funk.

The 7-6 lead would be the last of the game for Utah State. After a 3-point deficit at 15-18, the Aggies gave up a 10-point run to the Broncos.

The Aggies were on the wrong end of a three-point onslaught from Boise State. The Broncos shot 58% from deep in the game.

From wide-open to contested, the Broncos made it rain in front of the home crowd.

The Aggies also struggled from the free throw line, only hitting 6 of their 14 attempts.

Utah State was down 15 at the half, 45-30.

It was all Broncos in the second half as well. They opened up a 20-point lead right after halftime.

No matter what the Aggies tried, not much went their way. Boise State controlled the game and kept their large lead.

Along with their 43% performance from the stripe, the Aggies shot under 40% from the field. Tyler Funk was the only person who could get it going for Utah State. He finished with 14 points on 5 for 8 from the field and 4/5 from deep.
