What to Know
The Utah State Aggies and the #23 Colorado State Rams are set to clash at 9 p.m. ET March 10 at Thomas & Mack Center in the second round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament. Utah State will be seeking to avenge the 66-55 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played February 26th.
The Aggies earned some postseason bragging rights after a successful outing on Wednesday. They were the clear victors by an 83-56 margin over the Air Force Falcons. Utah State can attribute much of their success to forward Brandon Horvath, who posted a double-double on 18 points and 12 rebounds, and forward Justin Bean, who had 16 points.
Meanwhile, Colorado State came out on top in a nail-biter against the Boise State Broncos on Saturday, sneaking past 71-68. Colorado State's guard Kendle Moore looked sharp as he had 19 points in addition to five boards.
Utah State is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Aggies come into the game boasting the 19th highest field goal percentage in college basketball at 48.20%. But the Rams are even better: they rank 13th in college basketball when it comes to field goal percentage, with 48.70% on the season. This one is shaping up to be an exciting offensive shootout.
