All of Utah Needs to Shut Up and Cheer For This Team
Utah State is the only team to make the Big Dance this year. That means Utah fans need to humble themselves and learn "The Scotsman."
That means BYU fans have no need to rise and shout, so they may as well put on navy.
It means Utah Tech, SUU, UVU, and Weber fans need to cheer for a team that some of them beat and Utah Tech almost beat.
We're all Aggies this March in the Beehive State and I don't want to hear another word about it.
Utah State (-1) vs Missouri - Thursday 10:40am MDT in Sacramento, CA.
The Aggies are favored to win for some reason against Missouri. Missouri went 12-7 in the vaunted SEC and beat Tennessee in the conference tournament.
Missouri is similar to USU because they are an awesome three point shooting team. Their last five games they've made 48 threes!
Utah State has been one of the best three point shooting teams in the country all year so it will be a battle of who can make more.
I'm concerned that Utah State really only has one guy who can get his own shot off the dribble and it's Max Shulga. Steven Ashworth and Taylor Funk are the best shooters on the team but they can't really create for themselves and finish. That was a problem against San Diego State who had awesome perimeter defense and athletes all over the floor.
Missouri is going to be similarly athletic at every position, and Shulga is going to have to have a big game as a creator all while not turning the ball over a ton.
I like the Aggies to win and cover because I'm a homer.
