what to know
The Utah State Aggies are 13-1 against the San Jose State Spartans since December 2015, and they will have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. The Aggies and SJSU will square off in a Mountain West battle at 6 pm ET at Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. Utah State won both of its games against the Spartans last season (78-62 and 75-52) and is aiming for the same result this time.
Things were close when Utah State and the UNLV Rebels met on Tuesday, but Utah State ultimately outscored the opposition 75-71. Forward Taylor Funk was the offensive standout of the contest for Utah State, shooting 6-for-9 from beyond the arc and finishing with 20 points, five assists and six rebounds.
Meanwhile, SJSU was expected to struggle on Tuesday and, well, they did. Things couldn’t have gone much worse for them as they lost 77-57 to the New Mexico Lobos. Guard Omari Moore put in a good effort for the losing side, as he had 24 points and five assists.
The Aggies are now 15-4 while the Spartans are 12-7. A couple of stats to keep in mind as you watch: Utah State is stumbling into the matchup with the 44th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having racked up just 11.5 on average. SJSU has experienced some difficulties of its own, as it ranks 363rd in college basketball in starting points, at just 7.7 on average. It is possible that one of these Achilles heels could end up tripping up the losing team.
