Recap: Utah State vs. Nevada

Logan, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Spencer Butterfield was one of two Utah State players with a double-double, posting 20 points and 11 rebounds, as the Aggies defeated the Nevada Wolf Pack, 83-75, in Mountain West Conference action at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.

Butterfield, who made all but one of his nine field goal chances on the night, added three assists for the Aggies (13-9, 3-7 MWC) as they snapped a five-game slide. Jarred Shaw stepped up with 17 points and 13 rebounds, while Preston Medlin accounted for 14 points and seven assists. Kyle Davis pitched in with 12 points, shooting 10-of-12 at the free-throw line, but only 1-of-8 from the floor.

Deonte Burton led all scorers with 23 points, followed by Cole Huff with 21 and seven boards for the Pack (12-11, 7-3) as they had a two-game win streak come to an end. Michael Perez contributed 12 points, but the team could not fully compensate for Jerry Evans who tallied just seven points on 2-of-11 from the field.

Nevada led by as many as eight points late in the first half, yet even with just 37.0 percent shooting from the field and 1-of-7 behind the 3-point line in the period, USU still claimed a slim 28-27 advantage at the break.

In the second half the Aggies began to distance themselves with an impressive 61.5 percent effort from the floor and 5-of-7 beyond the arc, not to mention 18-of-23 shooting at the free-throw line, en route to the eight-point win.

The Wolf Pack, who were held to just 5-of-20 shooting on the perimeter, were outscored at the charity stripe, 25-14.
