Sunday: four game reports

Call it an odd night as the home team won but one of four contests.   

Louisiana Tech  hit Logan to see what Utah State is made of at this point and jumped to a 35-22 advantage after the first period. But the Aggies came back to make it a one possession game only to see the Bulldogs take a low-scoring 51-48 victory. Brandon Gibson came off the bench for LT to lead his team with 20 points (six treys!!) while Jarred Shaw imposed his will going for 21 points plus 14 boards and four shotblocks. USU's Spencer Butterfield didn't have a particularly good shooting night but finished with 16 points and an astounding 15 rebounds. The three standout game stats: 33% shooting for Tech, 27% for USU and a 48-29 rebounding advantage for the hosts.

If there is an Appleby's franchise in Logan, chances are good a boycott is being organized right now (you'll have to read the game reports)

San Jose State University was home challenged by Texas Arlington and a 38-19 initial half ended up securing the game for the Mavericks with the final score 66-47. Getting another start, forward Greg Gainey led Coach Scott's Cross' guys with 17 points with fellow frontcourter Kevin Butler posting a 13/10 double-double. Chris Cunningham paced the Spartans with his own 13/10 double-double but 22% overall shooting and going 4-25 on long distance sunk SJSU's chances.

Seattle welcomed Texas State and enjoyed a 42-35 halftime lead. But the Bobcats came back and end up victorious, 86-83. Coming off the bench, Reid Koenen scored 26 points, with Joel Wright posting 19 points and nine boards for Coach Doug Davalos. Corey Stern contributed a 10/11 double-double. For the Redhawks, Clarence Trent scored 22 posts and added eight rebounds while fellow frontcourter Deshaun Sunderhaus double-doubled with 17 and 12. Coach Cameron Dollar's crew was credited with 25 assists on 37 baskets.

Texas San Antonio met Idaho in Moscow and each scored 38 points in the opening 20 minutes. It stayed close but the Vandals emerged at the final horn with a 74-70 win. Kyle Barone was a perfect 10-10 from the floor (five dunks), finishing with 26 points, 16 rebounds, three shotblocks and two assists. Backcourter Connor Hill totaled 13 points and Stephen Madison concluded with 13. Coach Don Verlin's guys shot 52% overall, with just 11 turnovers. Michael Hale III continued his surge to a First Team All-WAC spot with 21 points (5-10 from long distance) and seven assists. Fellow guard  Kannon Burrage added 16 points while frontcourter Jordan Sims just missed a double-double with nine points and 11 caroms.
