LOGAN, UT - JANUARY 30 : Myron Amey Jr., #0 of the San Jose State Spartans drives between Darius Brown II #10 and Ian Martinez #4 of the Utah State Aggies during the first half at the Dee Glen Spectrum on January 30, 2024 in Logan, Utah.

LOGAN, Utah – The postseason is just around the corner, but No. 22 Utah State still has two games of rent to pay before they can focus on the Mountain West Championships next week. The Aggies have all eyes on San Jose State as they build a resume worthy of March Madness.

Utah State (24-5, 12-4) travels to California for its final true road game on Wednesday, March 6, against the San Jose State Spartans (9-21, 2-15). Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. MT.

Utah State’s 11 wins away from the Spectrum (seven road, four neutral) are tied for the most in the Mountain West and fifth most in the country. The Aggies’ 10-7 record in MW road matchups over the past two seasons is tied with SDSU, UNLV, and Boise State for the best league mark over that span.

USU holds a lopsided 67-19 advantage in the all-time series with SJSU. Utah State bested the Spartans in Logan to close January with an 82-61 win.

Myron Amey Jr. leads four Spartans in double-figure scoring with 15.5 points a night. Alvaro Cardenas scores 12.9 points, while Tibet Goerner (11.6 ppg) and Trey Anderson (11.1 ppg) round out the group.
