The visiting Redhawks (2-7) were led by Prince Obasi and Sterling Carter, who each scored eight points. Carter also led Seattle with seven rebounds.

Seattle outrebounded USU 43-35, but shot only 27 percent from the field the second half and only 13 percent from the 3- point line for the game.

The Aggies' 12-5 run to open the second half broke open the game. They broke a periodic full-court press employed by the Redhawks for several easy buckets, including a dunk by Berger. Utah State had six steals and 18 points off turnovers in the game.

Utah State scored 28 points from the free-throw line, while the Redhawks were 12 of 18 from the line.
