Block Party: Queta, Aggies start 4-0 in Mountain West play with sweep of Air Force

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah State's inside-out game was working in its series finale Saturday at Air Force.

Or in the Aggies' parlance, the Neemias Queta-Brock Miller game.

Queta had 15 points, 11 rebounds and a game-high six assists, and Miller added 13 points with three 3-pointers to help the Aggies improve to 4-0 in Mountain West play with a 72-53 win Saturday afternoon at Air Force.

Justin Bean added 15 points and seven rebounds for Utah State (7-3, 4-0 MW), and freshman Rollie Worster had 10 points, three rebounds and three assists.

Queta moved into a tie for second in Utah State history with his 148th career block and fourth block of the game.

AJ Walker led Air Force (3-5, 1-3 MW) with 19 points and five rebounds, and Chris Joyce added 11 points for the Falcons.

Utah State led by as much as 25 points in the second half, but Air Force cut the deficit as low as 14 with an 8-0 run capped by Joyce's putback with just under 8 minutes left.

The Falcons never got any closer, and the Aggies completed the season sweep by shooting 55% from the field and out-rebounding Air Force 38-21.

Utah State continues Mountain West play with a two-game series beginning Wednesday at New Mexico. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. MT on CBS Sports Network.
