USU finished the regular season with a 24-7 overall record, including 13-5 in league play. That record earned Utah State the No. 3 seed in the Mountain West’s Tournament.

The Aggies defeated the New Mexico Lobos and Boise State Broncos during their first two games of the conference tourney and advanced to the final against the No. 20 ranked San Diego State Aztecs.

The Aztecs defeated the Aggies, 62-57, on Saturday, March 11. It was Utah State’s first loss since February 11 and snapped a seven-game winning streak.

Some of Utah State’s notable wins this season include victories over Utah Valley, Bradley, Santa Clara, Oral Roberts, San Francisco, Loyola Marymount, Washington State, Boise State, Nevada, and San José State.

The Aggies will enter the NCAA Tournament with a 26-8 record.
