LOGAN, Utah (ABC4 Sports) – For the second time in a week, Utah State lost a game at home in the final seconds.

Marcus Shaver hit a 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds remaining to send the Aggies to their fourth straight loss, 62-59. Shaver was 0 for 10 from the field before hitting the game-winner.

This is Utah State’s first four-game losing streak in four years.

“Hard-fought game,” said Utah State head coach Ryan Odom. “Obviously, it was kind of a knockdown, drag-out game throughout. I was really proud of the guys and their effort, coming off of a short turnaround like that. Playing at Fresno State, playing really well in the first half offensively and then obviously falling short there, it’s a difficult thing.”

After holding BSU to 3-of-18 from behind the arc in the first 39 minutes of the game, the Broncos knocked down two shots from distance to tie the game with less than a minute and then secured the win with two seconds on the clock as Shaver hit the triple.

Mladen Armus had a career-high 22 points plus 19 rebounds, as Boise State stretched its winning streak to 11 games.

Justin Bean had 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Aggies (10-9, 1-5), while RJ Eytle-Rock added 14 points. Steven Ashworth and Brandon Horvath each had nine points for Utah State.

Ashworth played all 40 minutes as the Aggies were without the services of Rylan Jones and Brock Miller because of injuries. Ashworth finished the contest with nine points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals 

“Tough, that’s the word to describe tonight,” Ashworth said. “We fought. I think our toughness as a team was much better than what it’s been and that’s part of our goal is to continue to be a tough out. Going down the stretch we knew we had winning plays to make and we came up short on a few. Credit to them.”

Abu Kigab had 15 points and nine rebounds for Boise State (14-4, 5-0 Mountain West Conference). Emmanuel Akot added 11 points and three blocks.

Shaver Jr., whose 14 points per game coming into the matchup led the Broncos, had 3 points (1 of 11), a contested shot from the top of the key.

USU (10-9, 1-5 MW) took a 10-point lead at 22-12 midway through the first half after a 3-pointer from Ashworth and a pair of buckets from Eytle-Rock. Boise State (14-4, 5-0 MW) whittled the lead down to five at 24-19, but the Aggies maintained the advantage to hold a 30-24 edge going into the halftime break.

The Broncos tied it up at 33-33 with 16:25 to play after opening the second half on a 9-3 run. The teams continued to trade leads until a 6-0 Utah State run gave the Aggies the 53-50 advantage with 5:38 remaining. USU held onto the lead for the next four minutes as the Aggies led 59-56 with less than a minute left on the clock.

Boise State, who shot just 16.7 percent in the first 39 minutes of Thursday’s game from behind the arc, knocked down a triple to tie it at 59-59 with 51 seconds remaining. Utah State missed a shot on its next possession and Shaver Jr. pulled up from behind the arc on the ensuing possession and logged his only field goal of the night, as the Broncos won, 62-59.

Utah State finished the night shooting 38.5 percent (20-of-52) from the field, 22.2 percent (4-of-18) from behind the arc and 75.0 percent (15-of-20) at the free throw line.

Boise State shot 40.0 percent (26-of-65) from the floor, 25.0 percent (5-of-20) from behind the 3-point line and 33.3 percent (5-of-15) at the free throw line.

The Aggies also lost to Wyoming on Saturday on a game-winner shot with three seconds left in the game.

Utah State will try to end the losing skid next Wednesday night at home against San Diego State.
