Logan • A dominating first-half effort led the Aggies to break a recent cold streak on Saturday night, as they earned a 71-60 win over visiting Utah Valley.

Utah State (6-3) played big early, holding the Wolverines to only one field goal in the first 11:43. Preston Medlin led the Aggies to a 23-point lead at the half, with 15 points of his own in the first with four shots behind the 3-point line.
