Veterans pace Aggies to victory, Brandon Davies heckled off his game Next » 6 of 7 « Prev
Utah State had just graduated its most successful senior class in school history, and BYU had just graduated its all-time leading scorer. There was no letdown for the first game of 2011 for both schools, however.

This game came down to stellar guard play, namely that of Brockeith Pane. Despite playing in foul trouble, Pane had 17 points in the second half and engineered a 17-2 run that put the game out of reach.

"It was Spectrum magic, baby," Brady Jardine said about the run. "We always get better in the second half. We always seem to find that extra boost. I'm not sure if it's the fans or digging down deep, but we had a stretch in that second half where we played good defense and hit our open shots."

Regrettably, this game is more often remembered for the harsh treatment the Aggie faithful delivered to Brandon Davies. This game was Davies' first on the hardwood since he withdrew from school after committing BYU honor code violations the previous season, and the USU student section didn't allow him to forget that. Fan behavior prompted USU President Stan Albrecht to deliver an official apology to BYU.
