Utah State holds off San Francisco rally to win 82-64 at Chase Center – Cache Valley Daily

Dan Akin. Photo by Lorene Hale SAN FRANCISCO – Facing its highest rated opponent in what was essentially a road game, playing without its starting point guard, making a mere five 3-pointers and its leading scorer not playing as dominant as usual was…absolutely no problem for Utah State. The Aggies found other ways to not only win, but dominate at times on their way to an 82-64 win over San Francisco in the Chase Center on Sunday evening. The closest Utah State came to being in trouble after the opening exchange of blows at the start of the game was a pair of San Francisco runs, one in the first half and another in the second. The Aggies went up 22-10 mid-way through the first half, and while the Dons cut that lead to 28-23 USU responded with a 14-1 run for a 42-28 advantage. And in the second half a 64-42 Utah State lead was impressively cut down to 66-59, but yet again the Aggies responded by grinding the lead back up to 18 by the end of the game. Even with those runs by San Francisco, the Aggies were overall successful in their one goal for Sunday’s game:

Utah State to play Memphis in First Responders Bowl – Cache Valley Daily

LOGAN – It became official Sunday afternoon. Utah State will participate in its 15th official NCAA bowl game this year and 10th in the last 12 years. The Aggies will travel to Dallas, Texas to take on Memphis in the First Responders Bowl on Dec. 27. This will be Utah State’s first-ever appearance in the 12 year-old First Responders Bowl. The Aggies will be the third Mountain West team to participate (Air Force in 2021, UNLV in 2013). Like the Aggies, Memphis went 6-6 this year witha 3-5 record in conference play to finish eighth in the American Athletic Conference. Memphis have been bowl eligible nine straight seasons but are just 2-5 in those games (the Tigers did not play out its bowl game last year as its opponent, Hawaii, backed out due to players testing positive for COVID-19). This year’s matchup will be the eighth all-time between Utah State and Memphis but the first since 1977. The Aggies and Tigers faced each other seven times between 1965 and 1977 when USU was independent (Memphis was also independent for a couple of those meetings). Memphis holds the all-time series lead 4-3. Utah State overcame remarkably low odds to achieve bowl

How to watch, projected starters, injuries – Cache Valley Daily

Photo by Lorene Hale LOGAN – Utah State barely skated by Utah Tech in its last game and while the Aggies came out victorious, they didn’t come out unscathed. USU will be down its starting point guard as it heads to California to take on the highest-rated opponent of the season on a “neutral” court. San Francisco will test Utah State in every way from depth to defense. Should the Aggies leave the Bay Area still undefeated it’d be the most impressive feat by the team to date.

(AP Photo/Rick Bowmer) SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Anfernee Simons scored a career-high 45 points and blocked a potential 3-pointer with 4.6 seconds left to lead the Portland Trail Blazers to a 116-111 win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday night. “I wanted to be aggressive and set the tone for my teammates,” Simons said. “Early on, let them know that we are in this game and I’m going to do whatever it takes for us to win it.” The Jazz led 111-110 after Kelly Olynyk’s twisting jumper and then had a chance to tie it at 114, but Simons swiped the ball from Jordan Clarkson as he rose for a 3-point attempt from the right angle. “I just tried to catch him before he went up. … Kind of a risky play, but I’m glad I got it,” Simons said with a chuckle. The Trail Blazers had lost seven of their last eight games before winning this thriller as Damian Lillard missed his seventh game with

(AP Photo/Rick Bowmer) SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Lauri Markkanen had 24 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Utah Jazz to a 139-119 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. Rookie center Walker Kessler scored a career-high 20 points on 7-of-7 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds for Utah. Jordan Clarkson had 19 points and Collin Sexton added 18 as the Jazz shot 55% from the field and matched a season high for points. Myles Turner scored 18 points to lead Indiana. Tyrese Haliburton and Jalen Smith added 14 apiece, but the Pacers lost for the third time in four games on their road trip. Utah used efficient offense and stingy defense to take control before halftime. The Jazz shot 63% from the floor in the first half and made nine 3-pointers. They held the Pacers without a basket for three minutes in the first quarter to build a 35-21 lead. Indiana erased the deficit in the second, tying it on Smith’s layup, but Utah didn’t let the

EUGENE, Ore. – Utah State volleyball saw its historic 2022 campaign come to a close on Friday night as USU (22-11, 11-7 Mountain West) lost in straight sets to sixth-seeded Arkansas (21-8, 11-7 SEC) in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Friday’s match marked Utah State’s fifth-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament and its first since 2010.

Prior to the championship run, Boyd and Stall were each named all-Mountain West. Capllonch and Stall each led the Aggies with eight kills against the Razorbacks. Sophomore setter Beatriz Rodrigues led the squad with 15 assists, followed by freshman Leah Wilton-LaBoy with 12. Defensively, Mehmedovic and grad middle blocker Myrthe Maring led USU with three blocks each, while Capllonch had a match-best 10 digs. Utah State took an early 3-1 lead in set one after a pair of Stall kills and a Razorback attack error. Arkansas responded with a 3-0 run to take a one-point edge. The set stayed
