    LOGAN, Utah -- Jared Quayle scored 18 points and Gary Wilkinson added 17 to lead Utah State past Idaho 70-61 Monday night.

    Idaho pulled to a 54-51 score with 7:11 to play when Kashif Watson made a driving layup, but USU dropped in nine free throws in the final minutes to keep the lead.

    Although USU had 17 turnovers and the Vandals gained 12 steals against them, the Aggies had 36 rebounds to the visitors' 19.

    USU used an 18-4 run early in the first half to take a 30-14 lead, as they shot 5-of-6 from the 3-point line. But the Vandals went on a 10-1 run to stay close. USU led at halftime 40-34.
