Aggies hit the road for San Jose State without Steven Ashworth and Brock Miller – Cache Valley Daily

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Utah State (16-14, 7-10) finishes the regular season at San Jose State (8-21, 1-16) on Friday night. It will be the 90th meeting between the programs all-time.  “We have to make sure that we’re ready to go,” head coach Ryan Odom said. “It’s a big game for us heading into Las Vegas.” Friday’s game will be the last chance for the Aggies to grab a win before the Mountain West tournament. Utah State will have to do so without guards Steven Ashworth and Brock Miller.  Ashworth was injured during practice this week. Odom said he will likely not play in San Jose, but he “should be ready for the tournament.” “Nothing real serious right this second, but it could turn into something over the summer,” Odom said. “Thankfully, we’re at the end of the year. He’ll be shut down kind of at the end of the season and we’ll readjust.”  Miller aggravated an existing back injury during practice and will not travel to San Jose. This decision was not made only for injury, but also because Miller’s wife Bailey delivered their first child this week. Odom said the injury has put Miller’s status for the rest

When I’m calling my parents I’m happy to see them, but at the same time I know there’s other people, and relatives of people just dying out there, fighting for our country,” Shulga said on Wednesday in a video interview provided by Utah State Athletics. “I’m obviously happy to see my family healthy and safe but at the same time I’m mad that all that is going on and I can’t do nothing because I’m all the way here.” During a recent home game against Colorado State he was moved by a show of support before the game when USU students held up blue and yellow placards representing the Ukrainian flag. “One of the guys from the student section told me that they had a surprise for me in the game, so I kind of expected
