    LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Gary Wilkinson scored 18 points and Jaycee Carroll added 15 to lead Utah State to a 74-62 win over New Mexico State on Saturday night.

    Utah State coach Stew Morrill gained his 225th win with the victory, tying him for most in school history with E.L. Romney.

    With 6:58 to play, reserve Desmond Stephens dropped in his third 3-point shot and gave Utah State a 60-48 edge, its then-largest lead of the game. Peete and Gibson then each hit two 3-point shots in just over two minutes for New Mexico State, bringing the score to 60-60.

    In the final four minutes Utah State outscored New Mexico State 14-2.
