USU basketball: Utah State men's basketball to hold first practice Friday
In addition to Medlin and Reed, the Aggies also have a third returning starter in junior Danny Berger, who can play both forward positions. Last season Berger sat out the first six games of the year as a potential redshirt but then started in 25 of 31 games played. Berger netted double-digit points 10 times last season, including three of the final six games, highlighted by tying a school record with five three-pointers in a postseason game as part of his career-high tying 17 points in CollegeInsiders.com Tournament semifinal win over Oakland. Berger finished the year with a 6.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game average, while shooting 37.2 percent from the field (64-of-172) and 36.7 percent from three-point range (36-of-98) to go with a 76.9 percent free-throw shooting (40-of-52).
The fifth returning Aggie letterman is sophomore center Jordan Stone. Stone saw action in 31 games last season. He tallied 2.1 points and 2.5 rebounds per contest.
Joining Utah State's five returning lettermen are two redshirts, junior center Jarred Shaw and sophomore center Matt Lopez, as well as eight newcomers. The newcomers are evenly split of four junior college players in junior forward/guard Spencer Butterfield, junior forwards Sean Harris and Marvin Jean, and junior guard TeNale Roland. The four-player freshman class consists of forwards Quincy Bair and Quinn Taylor, along with guards Riley Bradshaw and Marcel Davis.
