Recap: BYU vs. Utah State

Provo, UT (Sports Network) - Craig Cusick's rebound and put-back with 0.2 seconds remaining provided the BYU Cougars with an exciting 70-68 victory over the Utah State Aggies in non-conference action at the Marriott Center.

Cusick shot just 1-of-7 from the floor on the night, finishing with four points and five rebounds for the Cougars (20-8) as they picked up their second straight win. Tyler Haws was the game's high scorer with 27 points, followed by Brandon Davies and Brock Zylstra with 10 points apiece.

The Aggies (18-7) were paced by Spencer Butterfield who registered a double- double with 21 points and 14 rebounds, adding five assists as the team bowed for the second time in the last three outings. Before fouling out, Jarred Shaw put up 13 points and eight rebounds, while Marvin Jean contributed 11 points.

BYU used some tough defense to support what became a 10-0 run during the first half and break a 15-15 tie. Limiting Utah State to only 2-of-13 shooting behind the 3-point line over the first 20 minutes of play, the Cougars were able to secure a 41-32 edge at the break.

With the game tied at 68-68, the Cougars played for the last shot and with the clock winding down Matt Carlino lifted up for a long jumper from the top of the key, but it came off the front of the rim, was caught by Cusick and shot back up all in one motion and fell through before time expired.

The officials went to the video replay to make sure that Cusick's shot beat the buzzer and upon review they decided that there should be 0.2 seconds placed back on the clock. USU threw the ball the length of the floor and it was tipped up against the backboard but failed to convert.

BYU survived despite shooting just 26.7 percent from the floor in the second half, including 1-of-10 beyond the arc in the period.

This was a game originally slated to take place on December 5, but it was postponed until now after Utah State's Danny Berger collapsed at practice that week, needing the aid of CPR and a defibrillator before being taken to a local hospital.
