The picture makes it look like the USU guy interfered with the shot. That looks like a foul to me. I wasn't at the game so I don't know.

The picture does show a couple things clearly. It shows Shaw with a clean block and total dominance in the key. It shows why the Aggie's had a 33pt no-effort win. It also shows more people in that small section of the Spectrum than the entire number of people who go to the SUU games. Now it is time for the Aggie's to get back to serious competition again. Go Big Blue!

Clean in your eyes and the refs eyes I guess. Hold on to what you consider a fact. It isn't and even you know it. I wouldn't call the WAC 2.0 serious competition. Maybe UNLV but the other WAC 2.0 schools, not a chance. Good luck in another letdown of a season.

Love the banter for both teams because it shows you care. At the end of the day, these players are living their dreams on the court. Whether USU is WAC 2.0 or SUU is Intro Big Sky, fans needs to fill the gym and give these kids support. Like or dislike Aggie fans, USU does a good job at getting people in the Spectrum and excited about their team. Cedar is a nice city but it is sad to hear the gym rarely gets half full for even the biggest of games. Not sure why SUU fans don't go to games but the fact is they don't. Maybe the new coach will be able to turn this around and build excitement in the community. Winning will help SUUU however due to the youth of the current SUU team, it may take a couple years.

I'm just saying it looks like an over the back call to me. Which is illegal. Care about what? Prove we don't. Have you been to a game in Cedar? The answer is no. Yes we are young. But what does that mean? Please instead of telling fictional stories tell the truth. And the truth is, you really don't know what you are talking about.

Over the back?. Try reading the caption on the picture first before commenting. Shaw and Jeffery are battling for a "rebound". Shaw, being the better player, is just taking from Jeffery what belonged to him.

Yes over the back. I don't know because I wasn't there. That's just the first thing I saw with one look at the picture. While I agree that Jeffery is nothing I can't help but laugh. "What belonged to him" what are we 7 years old?

@Nugget77

You are correct.

An over the back foul only occurs when Player B behind Player A physically impedes Player A from getting to the ball. The picture clearly shows that Shaw (Player B) made ZERO contact with the T-bird player (Player A.)

Clean play, no foul.

Great game, T-Birds. Great win, Aggies.

What I can't figure out from the picture is what "Cheddar" is doing? He's all hunched over. Is he tying his shoes or is he cowering down. Probably the latter after seeing how far Shaw is in the air above him....

Go T-birds

Shaw is a man among a couple boys, taking their ball with ease. Hard task for the SUU players to try and hang in there against D1 talent. Has SUU ever thought about dropping down to D2 to become competitive? Maybe a good move for a program that hasn't been above .500 for years.

No team in Utah belongs in D2 end of story.
