USU women’s basketball opens up season with 17-point win over College of Idaho – Cache Valley Daily

LOGAN – Utah State women’s basketball opened up the Aggie b-ball season with a quality 75-58 victory over the College of Idaho in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum on Monday afternoon. The Aggies began the game about as hot as hot gets. They went up 26-11 after the first quarter and built a lead as much as 24 (37-13) mid-way through the second quarter. USU were 4-of-6 from three in the first quarter, led by the hot-handed Cristina Oliva who started a perfect 3-for-3 from deep in that first quarter and made her first four triples overall. Getting that hot from deep was a welcome sight for the players as they had a bone to pick with the perception that got passed around after the exhibition. The Aggies didn’t shoot particularly well in that game and weren’t happy that that was the impression they left with fans. The team know its capabilities as shooters and wanted to show that. “I just want to point out that we’re not a bad shooting team,” graduate guard Maria Carvalho said. “We just had a bad start that’s it. We can shoot the crap out of the ball. ” The flaming start didn’t hold,

Aggie defense shuts down UVU in season opener en route to 17-point win – Cache Valley Daily

LOGAN – As the Utah State men’s basketball team huddled up for the final time before taking the court for its season opener, senior and captain Sean Bairstow had a message for his fellow players. “Nobody’s going to worry about their offense. We’re going to win this game with our defense.” That statement set the tone for what would be a defensive clinic by the Aggies in their eventual 75-58 win over Utah Valley in the team’s season opener Monday evening. The Wolverines shot just 32.8 percent from the field the entire game. Their leading returning scorer, Trey Woodbury, made just 4-of-12 field goals and was 0-for-3 on threes. Shutting down Woodbury was obviously a priority and the Aggies were able to limit him when he was on the floor. Max Shulga and Zee Hamoda were the primary defenders for Woodbury and Odom praised their effectiveness in “forcing Woodbury into some really hard shots.” Bairstow noted that “all the contests were there” for his shots. “He’s a tough guard,” Odom said of Woodbury. “He can draw a ton of fouls. And for us to remained disciplined while guarding him, forcing him to make some hard shots, that was a good
