Utah State guts one out

Utah State gained some separation from the rest of WAC after a 67-61 win against Louisiana Tech.

Pooh Williams scored all 15 of his points in the second half, as the Aggies (21-6) won their 11th straight game and 22nd straight home conference game.

And with Utah State up two with under a minute left, and Williams missing the front end of a one-and-one, Nate Bendall came up with the offensive rebound and three-point play.

Magnum Rolle scored 15, and Kyle Gibson added 14 for Louisiana Tech, which turned in a great effort in a hostile environment at the Spectrum that included "Shirtless Bill" dressed up like Peter Pan.

But the Bulldogs (20-6) fell into a third-place tie with Nevada in the conference. Utah State leads by a game and a half over New Mexico State.
