LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Prentiss Nixon scored 26 points and Colorado State halted a two-game skid, beating Utah State 84-75 on Wednesday night.
A contentious first half gave way late as Logan Ryan and Lorenzo Jenkins drained 3-pointers as part of a 15-6 run that took the Rams (9-9, 2-3 Mountain West Conference) from a one-point lead to a 41-31 advantage at intermission.
Colorado State led throughout the second half and a Nico Carvacho 3-point play followed by a Che Bob jumper helped stretch it to 60-38 with 14:31 to go.
Nixon was 8 of 14 from the field, 4 of 6 from distance and made all six of his free throws. Bob added 19 points and seven rebounds and Carvacho had 10 points and 15 rebounds for his third double-double this season.
Sam Merrill scored 18 points to lead the Aggies (10-8, 3-2). Koby McEwen added 11 points, seven boards and four assists.
