Why Utah State Will Win

The Aggies return to Logan for its home opener against Big Sky’s Montana State. On a normal day, Montana State would have a mismatch with its star guy Tyler Hall (23.1 PPG last season), but Utah State counters with a talented back court duo in Koby McEwen and Sam Merrill. The two were quiet in the season-opening loss at Weber State, but Montana State possesses a much smaller front court, which is good news for the undersized Aggies. USU should use a balanced attack to get its offense back on track against a solid Montana State squad.
