Trey Kell and Winston Shepard had a team-high 18 points each.

Utah State shot well from deep, burying 11 three-pointers on the night at a 44 percent clip. The Aggies put full effort in controlling the glass, ending the night plus-12 in the rebounding margin. Utah State had two players finish with 20-point efforts in Shane Rector (24) and Chris Smith (20), while Jalen Moore posted a 19-point, nine-rebound performance.

    Thursday’s quarterfinal matchup between San Diego State and Utah State will be the third meeting between the two this season. The Aztecs will look to sweep the season set, having won,  70-67, on Jan. 2 and, 70-55, on Jan. 23.

  6. Prediction

    The Aggies did a nice job shutting down a potent scorer in Josh Adams, but can they stop all the weapons the Aztecs have? That remains to be seen. Ultimately, San Diego State will prove why it was the best team the conference has to offer. It won’t allow Utah State to see the daylight it did on the perimeter in the first round. Expect Jeremy Hemsley, Trey Kell and Winston Shepard to put the ball in the basket with ease. The Aztecs will take the first step to a tournament championship.

    Prediction: San Diego State 82, Utah State 70
