LOGAN, Utah — The Seattle University men's basketball team dropped its fifth straight game, 78-53 to Utah State on Saturday night at the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.
The Aggies (5-5) did most of their damage from the free-throw line during a 10-2 scoring run that gave them a 15-8 lead with 11:46 left in the first half. Utah State scored 11 straight points on its way to a 35-24 halftime advantage, and rarely let up after the break.
The Aggies dominated nearly every aspect of Saturday's game, shooting 50 percent (22 of 44) from the field, including 6 of 11 from behind the three-point line, and 75.7 percent (28 of 37) from the free-throw line.
Nobody reached double figures in scoring for Seattle U, as the Redhawks shot just 29.2 percent (19 of 65) from the field, including 3 of 23 from long range.
Seattle U did win the rebounding battle, 43-35, including 21 offensive boards. Sterling Carter and Prince Obasi scored eight points each.
The Redhawks (2-7) next play Virginia at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday at KeyArena.
