Utah State faces Boise State on Friday, February 19th at ExtraMile Arena for an NCAA basketball Mountain West matchup.
Utah State and Boise State will be playing in game two of the back-to-back after game one was played on February 17th. In that game, Boise State was victorious in that game by the final score of 79-70. Utah Stata led at halftime of that game by the score of 39-37, but the Aggies fell flat in the second half. Boise State shot 44.4% from the field and 34.8% from three-point range. Utah State shot 46% from the field and only a measly 18.8% from beyond the arc. Utah State's leading scorer in the loss was C Neemias Queta, who went off for 32 points for the Aggies. G Derrick Alston Jr led the Boise State Broncos in scoring, as he also had a stellar night with 26 points.
Utah State is now 14-6 overall and 11-3 in conference play. Utah State has lost three of its last five games and is now in third place in the Mountain West standings behind Colorado State and Boise State. Utah State's leading scorer on the year is Neemias Queta, who averages 13.5 points per game and 9.2 rebounds per contest as well. Utah State as a team has scored 74.6 points per game and has allowed 62.2 points per game to its opponents as well.
Boise State is now 17-4 on the year, 13-3 in the conference, and is in first place in the Mountain West Conference standings. Boise State has won three straight games after losing two games to Nevada on the road. Boise State's leading scorer is Derrick Alston Jr, who averages 17.4 points per game. Boise State as a team has scored 77.6 points per game and has allowed 64.4 points per game to its opponents as well.
Boise State opens as a 2-point favorite and the total is set at 138.5. I like Utah State to get revenge against Boise State in this game. Queta was virtually unstoppable in game one, and I like him and the Aggies to grab an outright win over the Broncos on the road here.
