Utah State guard Ian Martinez is swarmed by defenders in an Aggie win over the Marshall Thundering Herd in the Cayman Islands Classic on Sunday, November 19.

LOGAN, Utah – Taking advantage of a mid-December matchup with Division II Northwest Nazarene, Utah State’s offense was humming early against the Nighthawks with a pair of early dunks.

Utah State hosted  Northwest Nazarene on Saturday, December 9 in the Aggies’ third-consecutive home game.

Mason Falslev and Great Osobor got the HURD crowd out of their seats early when Falslev’s steal became a scintillating fast-break dunk for Osobor. The redshirt freshman guard stepped in front of a pass with a head of steam, immediately guiding the transition chance.

With one defender between Falslev and Osobor, the junior wing rose about the defense, catching Falslev’s pass at its apex, then throwing it down on the unsuspecting defender’s head.

Moments later, Ian Martinez found himself free in transition and glided through the lane for an easy dunk that has become routine for the senior guard. Darius Brown II assisted on Martinez’s dunk.

Utah State used a 13-0 run to build an early 19-7 advantage over the Nighthawks.

Isaac Johnson has led a balanced Aggie attack with six points. Osobor has six points and two rebounds in the opening minutes after starting slowly in his past two games. Mason Falslev has two points, two rebounds, and three assists for USU in the first nine minutes of play.
