Oct. 26, 2010
LOGAN, Utah - Utah State's men's basketball team will hold its annual Blue-White scrimmage, presented by Macey's, on Wednesday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and admission is free.
Prior to the scrimmage, fans will meet all the members of the 2010-11 men's basketball team and hear from USU head coach Stew Morrill. Morrill will then run his team through two 10-minute sessions. At the conclusion of the scrimmage, players will be available for autographs.
Utah State, who is picked to finish first in the WAC's preseason polls, returns four starters and eight letterwinners from last year's team that advanced to its 19th NCAA Tournament all-time, including its seventh in the last 11 years under Morrill as it lost to Texas A&M, 69-53, in the first round. USU finished the 2009-10 season with a 27-8 record and went 14-2 in WAC play to claim its third-straight regular season league championship, which is a school record. Over the last three years, USU has a combined record of 81-24 (.771) including a 40-8 (.833) WAC mark.
Following the Blue-White scrimmage, USU will play its first exhibition game on Saturday, Oct. 30 against Universite Laval at 7 p.m. in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum, where trick or treating for kids in costume will be available on the concourse.
