LOGAN, Utah (AP) - Curtis Bobb scored 16 points and yanked down 16 rebounds to lead Utah State to a 76-60 victory over Long Beach State Thursday night.

The late-night televised game pitted the Aggies (13-3 overall, 3-0 Big West) against the team that preseason polls predicted would most likely challenge them for the conference title. The loss was the first in conference play for the 49ers (8-7, 2-1).

Jeremy Vague scored 12 points for USU and Dion Bailey and Shawn Daniels each had 10.

Long Beach was led by Travis Reed with 14 points and Ron Johnson with 10.

USU led 35-29 at halftime and began the second half with a 11-2 run, after which it never relinquished a double-digit lead.

Two consecutive slam dunks by Vague at the end of fast breaks gave USU its biggest lead, 71-48 with 4:47 remaining.

In the second half, the 49ers accelerated their pressure defense, forcing several turnovers and putting USU on the free-throw line.

A sticky Aggie defense held Ramel Lloyd, who came into the game as the conference's leading scorer with 19.3 points per game, to six points.
