Aggies comeback falls short against league-leading Louisiana Tech Next » 5 of 7 « Prev

Editor's note: Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Utah State was starting to get some national poll votes, but after losing four straight games and their two best players, the Aggies are simply treading water. Their loss on Saturday does not diminish USU's defensive and rebounding effort, both of which were stellar in this match.

LOGAN — The Utah State Aggies may be undermanned for the rest of the season, but don’t expect them to quit fighting. Against WAC-leading Louisiana Tech on Saturday, the Aggies erased a 13-point halftime deficit before coming up just short in a 51-48 defeat.

The loss was USU’s fourth in a row and marks the first time under head coach Stew Morrill that the Aggies have dropped four consecutive games. The last time that happened was in 1994.

Morrill was critical of some players' effort Thursday night in a loss to UT Arlington, but could find no fault in the energy level from his squad against the Bulldogs.
