Congratulations to Utah State who became the first team to punch their ticket to this year’s NCAA Tournament. The Aggies defeated San Diego State 59-56 in the Mountain West Championship in dramatic fashion. Sam Merrill was the hero of the game playing all 40 minutes. The senior guard for the Aggies led all scorers with 27 points and hit a huge 3 point shot in the closing seconds. Utah St will be returning to the Big Dance for a second year in a row and are tentatively slated as an #11 seed while the Aztecs will most likely slip to a #2 seed after suffering only their second loss of the season.
