Utah State went 2-0 this week to close the year on a five-game winning streak and the Alpine, Utah native played a huge role in USU’s success.

In a 91-66 win at UNLV, Ashworth contributed across the board. He scored 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting with five threes. Not a one-trick pony, Ashworth added seven assists, three steals and two rebounds.

Three nights later, in a must-win environment against Boise State, Ashworth was sublime. Ashworth played the entire game, save for 21 seconds of rest midway through the second half. In 39 minutes he scored 19 points, added a team-high eight assists and pulled down four rebounds with four steals.

Utah State clinched the third seed in the 2023 Mountain West Championships in Las Vegas with the win

For the week, Ashworth averaged 23.0 points, 7.5 assists, 3.5 steals and 3.0 rebounds per game, while shooting 53.3 percent (16-of-30) from the field, 50.0 percent (8-of-16) from deep and 85.7 percent (6-of-7) at the free throw line.
