LOGAN -- Utah State's men's basketball team will hold its annual Blue-White Scrimmage, presented by Macey's, on Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is free.
Prior to the scrimmage, fans will meet all the members of the 2011-12 men's basketball team and hear from USU head coach Stew Morrill. Morrill will then run his team through two 10-minute sessions. At the conclusion of the scrimmage, players will be available for autographs.
Utah State, which is picked to finish first by the media and third by the coaches in the WAC's preseason polls, returns one starter and four letter-winners from last year's team that advanced to its 20th NCAA Tournament all-time, including its eighth in the past 12 years under Morrill as it lost to Kansas State, 73-68, in the second round.
USU finished the 2010-11 season with a 30-4 record and went 15-1 in WAC play to claim its fourth-straight regular season league championship, which is a school record. Over the past four years, USU has a combined record of 111-28 (.799), including a 55-9 (.859) WAC mark.
Following the Blue-White Scrimmage, USU will play its first exhibition game on Friday, Oct. 28, against UC San Diego at 7 p.m. in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.
Doug Hoffman is the assistant athletic director for Utah State University.
