Recap: Utah State vs. Nicholls

Logan, UT (Sports Network) - Kyisean Reed registered a double-double with 20 points and a game-high 12 rebounds as the Utah State Aggies posted a 79-72 win over the Nicholls State Colonels as part of the World Vision Basketball Challenge at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.

Reed, who knocked down 7-of-9 shots from the floor, added four blocked shots and three steals for the Aggies (7-1) as they ran their win streak to six in a row. Also recording a double-double for the hosts was Jarred Shaw with 19 points and 11 boards, while Spencer Butterfield tacked on 14 points in the triumph.

The Colonels (1-6), losers of four straight, were paced by T.J. Carpenter who tallied a game-high 23 points before fouling out. Fred Hunter responded with 17 points and 10 rebounds, Dantrell Thomas 13 points and 10 boards before picking up his fifth personal foul. Off the bench, Amin Torres dropped in 10 points in 18 minutes of action.

Nicholls led by two points about four minutes into the contest, but the team made a total of just eight field goals in the first half and soon found itself trailing by a score of 43-22 at the break. USU made good on an impressive 57.7 percent from the floor through the first 20 minutes.

In the second half the Colonels battled back, outscoring the hosts by a 50-36 margin, but the deficit proved to be far too great for the visitors as they still fell by seven.

Utah State not only converted 55.3 percent from the field in the contest, it also outscored the Colonels at the charity stripe, 23-13.

Both programs will be back in action on Friday as Utah State clashes with UC Davis and the Colonels battle Southern Illinois.
