Merrill, Bean help Aggies pull away from Wyoming for 5th straight win
LOGAN - With two games left in the regular season, Utah State's men's basketball team is rolling - and they have the No. 2 seed in the conference squarely in their sights.
Thank you, Sam Merrill.
Merrill poured in 26 points, and Justin Bean added 20 points and 14 rebounds to help Utah State pull away from hapless Wyoming 78-58 on Wednesday night at the Dee Glenn Smith Spectrum.
Neemias Queta had 8 points, 15 rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots for Utah State, which outrebounded the Pokes (6-21, 1-14 MW) 42-25 on the glass. Abel Porter supplied 10 points for USU, which improved to 22-7 and 11-5 in the Mountain West with its fifth straight victory.
Greg Milton had 10 points and four rebounds for the Cowboys, and teammate TJ Taylor scored 16 points.
After a slow start, Merrill hit his second triple of the game to help launch a 14-2 run and the Aggies to a 42-27 halftime lead. The senior from Bountiful made just two shots from the field over the first 15 minutes but ended the half with a flurry to finish with 12 points, two rebounds and two assists at the break.
Merrill capped a 7-2 run with a 3-pointer that put Utah State up by 20, 49-29, just 90 seconds into the half. The rest was just cosmetic for the Aggies' eighth win in the past nine games.This story will be updated.
