(AP Photo/Rick Bowmer) LAS VEGAS — Utah State’s run in the Mountain West Basketball Championship, and possibly the postseason, came to an end on Thursday night. Colorado State eked out a win over the Aggies, 53 to 51. “I thought it was a really good college basketball game, overall,” head coach Ryan Odom said. “Points were hard to come by. Defense was pretty solid. The intensity was what you would want in a tournament setting.” With the defeat, thoughts of Aggie fans look toward the impending decision of forward Justin Bean. He has a year of eligibility remaining due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but his performance this year was good enough for Bean to go pro. “I know there’s a lot of speculation out there,” Bean said. “I mean, that’s going to be a conversation that my wife and I, obviously, have… involving coach Odom as much as we can. That’s going to be something that we discuss for sure.” Bean grabbed 13 rebounds on

Region 11 coaches announce girls basketball awards – Cache Valley Daily

Ridgeline Riverhawks player Emilee Skinner dribbles the ball in a game against Green Canyon. Photo by Clint Allen MILLVILLE – A magical season for the Ridgeline Riverhawks came up short after two overtimes in the state championship game at Dixie State University last month, but that didn’t prevent the team from capturing several post-season awards as voted on by Region 11 coaches. Emilee Skinner was recognized as the Region MP and Defensive MVP. Her coach, Ainsli Jenks, was also recognized as the Coach of the Year but she shares that honor with Logan High coach Tori Craner. The Ridgeline and Logan seasons were a story in contrasts. The Riverhawks were regarded as the top team in the state for much of the season and routinely had large margins of victories over their opponents. The Grizzlies, on the other hand, were a rebuilding basketball program after having appeared in the state championship just last year. The Logan girls team never won a game and suffered defeats by wide margins throughout the year, one of which made headlines when Ridgeline blew out the Grizzlies 96-15. Coach Jenks was suspended for one game by Ridgeline administration for what was deemed poor sportsmanship. The

Aggies seeking first win over Colorado St. this season while in Las Vegas – Cache Valley Daily

Brandon Horvath. Photo by Tina Lerohl LAS VEGAS — No. 7 seed Utah State (18-14) will face No. 2 seed Colorado State (24-4) in the quarterfinal round of the Mountain West Basketball Championship tonight. “We know we’re facing a team that’s dynamite,” head coach Ryan Odom said. “Colorado State has had an awesome season.” The Rams have gotten the best of the Aggies twice this season. Earlier this year at Colorado State, Utah State fell by five. In the Spectrum, just under two weeks ago, the Rams won it by 11. “We had two pretty close games with them,” Odom said. “One just a week and a half ago where we had some opportunities, but they were experienced down the stretch and really did a nice job of finishing us off. We know it’s going to be really difficult, but we’re excited that we’re going to have another opportunity.” The Aggies’ 83-56 win over Air Force yesterday gave them a berth to this game. The dominant fashion Utah State did it in allowed them to rest starters in the final minutes. The rest may prove crucial against a Colorado State team that has not played in five days. “Certainly it
