LOGAN, Utah - Senior wing Jalen Moore scored in double figures for the 31st consecutive time with 14 points, while freshman guard Koby McEwen added 13 points, but it was not enough as Utah State fell to Colorado State 64-56 in front of 8,854 fans Saturday night at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.

Moore's streak of scoring in double figures is tied for the ninth-longest in school history, along with Jaycee Carroll (2006-07) and Rich Haws (1974-75). Overall, the native of North Logan, Utah, has scored in double figures in 43 of his last 44 games and 79 games in his career.

Emmanual Omogbo finished with a double-double, recording 20 points and 16 rebounds for the Rams (12-8, 4-3 Mountain West), who never trailed on the night. Gian Clavell and Prentiss Nixon chipped in 15 and 14 points apiece, respectively, for Colorado State.

Senior guard Shane Rector added nine points off the bench for the Aggies (8-10, 2-5), to go along with a career-high seven rebounds.

Utah State trailed by as much as 16 points in the second half, but pulled to within six on two occasions with less than two minutes remaining. However, the Aggies would get no closer than that as the Rams made six of their final seven free throws on the night.

In the first half, Colorado State shot 51.9 percent (14-of-27) from the floor in building a 35-23 lead at the break. The Rams cooled off considerably after halftime and shot 42.9 percent (24-of-56), including 30.8 percent from 3-point range (4-of-13), for the game.


 

 

Utah State shot just 36.7 percent (22-of-60) from the field, including 15.8 percent from beyond the arc (3-of-19).

Redshirt sophomore forward Alexis Dargenton recorded his team-leading 10th dunk of the season when he took a pass from Moore and flushed it with authority. The basket pulled the Aggies to within 58-51 with 1:33 to go.

Up next for Utah State is a trip to Albuquerque, N.M., for a matchup with New Mexico on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Tip-off is slated for 9 p.m. and will be televised live on ESPNU.
