The Fresno State Bulldogs (9-16) will host the Utah State Aggies (20-7) on Saturday,
February 15th for a Mountain West Conference match up at Save Mart Arena in Fresno,
CA. The game is scheduled for a 7:00 pm PT tip off.
Fresno State will come into this game after an overtime win against San Jose State 84-
78. The Bulldogs were led by Niven Hart who finished with 30 points and 9 rebounds.
Four other players tallied double digit scoring in a collective team effort. Fresno State
has won three of their last 5 games and will look to win at home playing a team in Utah
State who they took to overtime earlier in the year.
On the season, Fresno State is averaging 69.4 points per game while shooting 41.8%
They tend to turn the ball over a lot averaging 13 turnovers per game. They will need to
keep this in check to have a chance with Utah State who have won 3 straight games.
Fresno State has Orlando Robinson, New Williams and Nate Grimes who are all
averaging over 12 points per game.
The Utah State Aggies will hope to keep their 3-game win streak alive after coming off a
closely contested 75-72 victory over Colorado State. The Aggies were led by Sam
Merrill who scored 32 points and shot an efficient 12-18 from the field. Also in double
figures were Neemias Queta and Diogo Brito for the Aggies.
On the season, the Aggies are averaging 76.7 points per game while giving up 64.1
points. They are led by senior guard Sam Merrill who averages 18.4 points and 4.3
rebounds per game.
Utah State is 3-2 ATS in the last 5 games whereas the Fresno Bulldogs are only 2-3
ATS in the last 5. Utah State has struggled on the road this season with a 3-5 away
record however Fresno State is not much better at home with a 5-6 record.
I expect this to be a high scoring affair. However, with the Aggies rolling as of late I don’t
think Fresno State will have the man power to keep up with them. I’ll take the Aggies to
lay the number here.
