LOGAN (AP) — Danny Berger came off the bench to score 17 points and lead Utah State to a 71-50 win over Troy in the finale of the Basketball Travelers Classic tournament Saturday night.

Berger's first points, a 3-pointer five minutes into the game capped a 14-0 run by the Aggies to start the game and his dunk with 10 seconds left capped a 38-1 first half. He finished shooting 6 of 8 from the floor, including 2-for-2 from 3-point range.
