  • Men's basketball: Utah St....

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Utah State steamrolled the rest of the Western Athletic Conference with one of the best seasons in school history, winning the regular-season title by five games.
    Now that it’s conference tournament time, another Aggies romp is coming up, right?
    Possibly. It’s just that Utah State isn’t looking at it that way.
    With an NCAA berth not quite a sure thing and so many close games during the season, the 23rd-ranked Aggies aren’t going to take any gambles on their trip to The Strip.
