Preston Medlin and Adam Thoseby put on a shooting clinic in Pocatello tonight leading the Aggies to a 75-62 victory over the Idaho State Bengals. Medlin had a career night pouring in 26 points going 9-13 from the field and 8-11 from downtown. His performance placed him in the top 4 all-time for three pointers made in one contest. The hot shooting didn’t stop with Medlin as Adam Thoseby was also on fire. Thoseby who made his first start for the Aggies as a true freshman, had a career night dropping in 16 points going 6-8 from the field and 4-6 from downtown.
Idaho State’s gameplan of using a zone defense led the many open looks from outside, and the Aggies made them pay. Overall Utah State shot 68.4% from the three point line going 13-19 for the game.
The win was a welcome one for Aggie Nation after suffering one of the most devastating losses in recent memory at the hands of Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
Up next for the Aggies
Utah State will welcome a good Denver squad to the Spectrum on Wednesday night. Last year a not-so-good Denver team gave the Aggies all they could handle, with Utah State pulling out a 61-53 victory in a game that was closer than the final score might indicate. Denver recently laid a beat down on perennial WCC powerhouse St. Mary’s, and has started the season 4-1. Their only loss this year came to #18 California.
