One of the Utah State basketball team's goals this season has been to control the interior better than last season. It's early, and the Aggies haven't played the toughest schedule, but that goal is on track.
As they have been the past few weeks, the Aggies are ranked in the top 10 in rebounding margin. This week, Utah State is No. 3 (15.0 rpg) behind Colorado State and Maryland, thanks much in part to decimating DII Western Oregon 43-21 on the boards.
But that's not the only statistical area where the team is among the nation's best: Utah State is also No. 15 in field goal percentage (48.7 percent) and No. 16 in assists per game (17.2 apg). It shouldn't surprise that Utah State leads the Western Athletic Conference in these categories.
