The Aggies survived as much as they won on Tuesday night at the Dee Events Center.
Weber State gave Utah State a run for its money, but the visiting Aggies managed to get by with a 77-71 win over one of their perennial toughest rivals. The other tough local rival will play Utah State on Saturday night at EnergySolutions Arena.
One of the biggest difference-makers was sophomore forward Kyle Davis, who recorded "his best game as an Aggie," coach Stew Morrill said. In the second half, Davis seemed to get lost by the baseline as the Wildcats doubled up on Shaw, and from there, it was a matter of teammates finding him and him finishing.
