"It's definitely kind of weird playing a league opponent in a postseason event," Morrill said. "It happens pretty rarely, but it does happen. They are playing pretty well right now. They are getting up and down the court and scoring a ton of points. We have to find a way to slow them down a little bit."
For the Aggies, slowing the Vandals didn't prove to be a difficult task three weeks ago. With sophomore guard Preston Medlin having a career night, Utah State handily beat Verlin's crew, a win that was much needed at the time.
But Idaho is formidable with the inside-out duo of Kyle Barone and Deremy Geiger. Medlin will likely see a lot of attention, which could make scoring difficult for the Aggies if others don't step up and play well.
"I think they're going to give us a number of different looks," Morrill said. "We're going to have to be ready for everything. They are going to focus on Preston. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you play us, he's a big concern."
