Utah State advances to WAC tournament final in dominating fashion with 30-point win over Louisiana Tech

Everything went Utah State’s way on Friday night as the top-seeded Aggies trounced No. 4 seed Louisiana Tech, 85-55.

Utah State shot over 58 percent from the floor and had eight players with more than one basket. First-team All-WAC guard Jared Quayle led the way with 16 points in a limited role as the Aggies rested him for tomorrow night’s championship. USU will play the winner of the Nevada-New Mexico State game that takes place later tonight.

An 8-0 run and a 14-4 run in the first half helped Utah State jump out to a 22-point lead at the break. A stifling defense and hot-shooting offense were too much for the Bulldogs to overcome, and an early injury to 6’11" post Magnum Rolle all but sealed LaTech’s fate.

Utah State’s Brady Jardine had 13 points and five rebounds. Louisiana Tech star Kyle Gibson was limited to 10 points, tied with two other Bulldogs for a team high.
