LAS VEGAS (ABC4 Sports) – Last night after Utah State defeated Fresno State, Aggies star Sam Merrill made an offer that just fans couldn’t resist. He said head coach Craig Smith would pay for their gas if they drove down Saturday morning for the Mountain West Tournament championship game against San Diego State.
“I’m grateful for our fans, who were awesome again tonight. We’re hoping to ahve a lot more tomorrow. It’s not that long of a drive, it’s only six hours. Coach will pay for your gas if you need to.
Smith then added, “And your speeding tickets.”
