Utah State at Walt McPherson Court Thursday night

The capo di tutti capi of the Western Athletic Conference -- otherwise known as Utah State -- arrives in San Jose Thursday for a game at Walt McPherson Court. The Aggies are on a roll (17-1, 5-0 in league play) as usual despite the graduation of scoring great Jaycee Carroll. Call it reloading, not rebuilding in Logan.

Stats guru Ken Pomeroy ranks Utah State as the second most efficient D-1 team on offense in college basketball this season. The Aggies are the top shooting team in the country at 51.6%.

Here's Shawn Harrison with his most recent take on Stew Morrill's squad:

After feeling a bit down after Thursday’s win, the Aggies were riding high again following Saturday night’s victory.

The Utah State men’s basketball team is the lone undefeated team in Western Athletic Conference play at 5-0 and have won 12 straight to improve to 17-1 overall. Aggie head coach Stew Morrill was pleased, as well, and gave his team Sunday off.

Today, however, the team returns to practice while the rest of the USU student body has the day off. The Aggies aren’t complaining, as they acknowledged after Saturday’s 79-65 win over Boise State, there is still plenty of room for improvement...
Go here for the remainder.
