2019 NCAA Tournament: How To Watch, Stream No. 8 Utah State vs. No. 9 Washington
Aggies are on TNT Friday late afternoon.
Aggies looking to continue the great season.
Utah State is back in the NCAA Tournament for the first time while a member of the Mountain West and the Aggies are a favorite over the Washington Huskies of the Pac-12.
The Aggies have been to the tournament 20 times prior and this No. 8 seed is the highest in school history. This is well deserved as first-year Craig Smith is coaching in his first NCAA Tournament as a head coach en route to have the most wins as a first-year head coach in Logan.
The big things to look forward in this game is if Sam Merrill not only will play at least 37 minutes but are there any players on Washington’s roster who can slow down the Mountain West player of the year.
If the Aggies are to win they need its lockdown defense to stop any Huskies attack and that seems like a real possibility. Plus, getting the typical production from freshman phenom Neemias Queta and Diogo Brito who comes of the bench. Those three players play well then look for the Aggies win.
