LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Jared Quayle scored 22 points, including 18 in the second half, to lead Utah State past in-state rival Brigham Young 71-61 Wednesday night.

Quayle dropped in 5 of 11 shots and 11 of 13 from the free throw line to lead the Aggies (3-3).


BYU (5-1) was led by Jimmer Fredette with 19 points. Chris Miles added 11. BYU shot 50 percent from behind the 3-point line in the first half but managed only 12 percent in the second.

Utah State took the lead for good at the 17:08 mark of the second half when Quayle hit two free throws. Freshman Preston Medlin then sank two consecutive 3-pointers for Utah State, and Quayle added another to keep BYU in a hole.

In the first half, the Cougars took a quick 10-3 lead but then went 7 minutes without scoring, allowing Utah State to take a brief 11-10 lead.
