    Poor shooting and turnovers key in loss

    Nov. 1, 2006

    LOGAN, Utah - Turnovers down the stretch and poor shooting doomed Utah State basketball in its first exhibition game as the Aggies lost 67-60 to EA Sports here Wednesday night.
    Jaycee Carroll led the Aggies with 24 points, while also adding eight rebounds, but USU, which ranked third in the country in field goal percentage last season, hit just 39.3 percent of its attempts en route to the loss.
    Carroll, a junior guard, hit nine of 16 attempts, but the rest of the Aggies struggled as the other four starters combined for just eight of 23 shooting. Chaz Spicer hit four of eight attempts en route to 14 points for USU, but no other Aggie had more than six points.
    Meanwhile EA Sports shot 52.0 percent, a figure the opponents reached just three times last season. Troy Devries, a former New Mexico player, led EA with 24 points on eight of 12 shooting, which included five of eight from three-point range. Geoff Husted added 12 points and 12 rebounds for the visitors, while Jason Forte chipped in 12 points.
    USU, which out-rebounded the visitors 38-32, was paced on the board by Chris Session, who pulled down a game-high 14. Session also added six points, two assists, one block and one stea.
    EA Sports jumped out to a 34-25 halftime lead. The Aggies cut the margin to 36-33 three minutes into the second half as Carroll hit three layups and assisted on another by Chaz Spicer as USU opened the half on an 8-2 run.
    However EA Sports pushed the margin back to 12 just two and one half minutes later outscoring the Aggies 13-4. USU was able to cut the lead to just one when Session followed a miss with a layup to bring USU within 55-54 with 6:16 remaining in the game.
    The margin hovered between three and eight points the rest of the game as USU struggled holding onto the ball as well as shooting it down the stretch. USU will host Occidental College in its final exhibition game on Monday, Nov. 6 before opening the regular season at Northwestern (La.) State on Nov. 10.

    Utah State Aggies, Not T A&M.

    Note that Stinnet will be in the house at Creighton's game tonight against EA.

    7:00 at Quest Center for #23 ranked Creighton BlueJays. So ISU will be playing a team travelling cross country on its third night.

    If Clones lose, that would not be very nice to Mother nature.
    If Clones win, great. Better than last year.
