The Utah State Aggies will take their first step in what they hope will be a miracle bid in the NCAA Tournament when they take on the San Jose State Spartans on Wednesday in the first round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament.

The Aggies (13-16) enter the tournament as the 8-seed, and the Spartans (14-15) are the 9-seed. The winner will face top-seeded Nevada on Thursday.

In the teams' lone meeting this season on Feb. 22 in San Jose, Utah State came away with an 81-75 victory.
