USU blows out New Mexico State 85-58 in Myrtle Beach Invitational semifinal – Cache Valley Daily

CONWAY, S. C. – Utah State will play for the Myrtle Beach Invitational Championship after blowing out New Mexico State, 85-58. Utah State played 50 minutes of basketball the day before but they didn’t show it. The Aggies were able to out-gun and outrun New Mexico State by building a large lead early in the game and utilizing bench players to give rest to their starters. Guard Rylan Jones led USU in scoring with 19 points. He also picked up four rebounds, four assists and two steals. Jones looked a lot more confident in this game than he has in the first three. He didn’t hesitate to shoot from beyond the arc, swishing five 3-pointers on six shots, but also continued his strong defense this season on the other side of the court. New Mexico State tried to limit forward Justin Bean on offense, but he still significantly helped the Aggies. Bean finished with 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists. He also led the team in plus/minus with 33. Jones credits Bean with creating chances for Utah State on offense. “They tried to take away Bean, but he was just facilitating and we were making our shots,” Jones said.

Utah State volleyball defeats Colorado State, 3-1, for first win versus Rams since 1982 – Cache Valley Daily

LOGAN, Utah — In front of a packed crowd at the Wayne Estes Center on Thursday night, Utah State volleyball bucked a 32-game losing streak versus Colorado State with a 3-1 victory to pull even with the Rams for first place in the Mountain West standings. It is the first time the Aggies have defeated CSU since Nov. 11, 1982. “We’ve been working so hard and this match was so important to us,” senior Kristy Frank said. “Beating the number one team just proves that we can beat anyone in the conference and we can win the conference. It’s just so good to see all of our hard work paid off.” Frank led the way for USU, setting a new career-high with 22 kills in the match while hitting a team-best .378 on 45 attacks. The native of Kiev, Ukraine, also posted her first career solo block, part of two total blocks on the night to go along with eight digs. “Feeling my last senior games,” Frank said. “Really emotional… Our team did so amazing, I’m so proud. It proves so much to us and now we can be even 100 times more confident.” Defensively, the Aggies blocked a season-high 18

USU fighting to stay No. 1 in standings as Wyoming comes to Logan – Cache Valley Daily

Photo by Robert K. Scott LOGAN—Two games stand between the Utah State football team and a spot in the conference championship game. At 8-2 overall and 5-1 in conference, the Aggies could lose one of those games and still play for the conference championship, but that would mean relying on another team to beat Boise State. The easiest way to the goal is to simply win the two remaining games. The first game of the two is this Saturday at 6 p.m. in Logan, and it has a trophy involved. The winner of Saturday night’s clash between USU and Wyoming claims the antique .50 caliber Rocky Mountain Hawken rifle known as the Bridger Rifle. Wyoming started this football season 4-0, but have since won just one game. That lone win came against Colorado State in the Cowboys’ other rivalry game by a score of 31-17, putting the record at 1-5 in conference and 5-5 overall. USU is playing for a conference championship, but Wyoming has plenty on the line as well. The Cowboys need one more win to become bowl eligible, and this is the team’s second-to-last chance to get it. When comparing Wyoming to past opponents, USU head coach

Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder calls a play during the first half of an NBA basketball game against Toronto Raptors, Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021, in Salt Lake City. (AP Photo/George Frey) SALT LAKE CITY — Rudy Gay showed he still knows how to make a major impact on a game even while playing limited minutes. Gay hit five 3-pointers and scored 20 points in his season debut to help the Utah Jazz beat the Toronto Raptors 119-103 on Thursday night. Gay also had five rebounds while playing just 18 minutes. He missed Utah’s first 14 games while recovering from offseason surgery on his right heel. Returning from a surgery that forced Gay to teach himself how to walk again for a second time in his NBA career would have been too daunting for most players in their mid-30s. Gay embraced the challenge of coming back. “It’s not easy. It takes a lot of dedication,” Gay said. “You got to be a little different and I’m a little different. His offense wasn’t the only thing that lifted the Jazz to their second straight win. Gay made good defensive plays and provided enough spacing and passing to help the offense operate
