Tai Wesley's elder brother leads BYU against the Aggies for a 2-point comeback win in 2000. Next » 1 of 7 « Prev
Morrill's first few years at the helm of the Aggie program were difficult for Spectrum regulars, particularly against BYU. The Cougars rolled off three straight victories against the Aggies, two of which came by two points.

In 2000, ironically it was a Wesley—Mekeli Wesley, the elder brother of Tai Wesley— who helped the Cougars rally to win a nailbiter in Provo. When Terrell Lyday sprained an ankle in the first half, both he and Trent Whiting stepped up scoring 22 points each.

Interestingly enough, it was the first time Whiting and Wesley had played together in more than a year.

"It's a little surprising that a guy could come in without playing and play like that," USU coach Stew Morrill said of Whiting. "If he keeps playing like that, he'll be all-league."
