    LOGAN, Utah -- Tai Wesley scored a season-high 26 points and pulled down a team-high eight rebounds to lead Utah State past Boise State 79-65 Saturday night.

    Jared Quayle also scored 18 and Gary Wilkinson added 10 for the Aggies (17-1, 5-0 Western Athletic Conference). The Broncos (12-5, 3-2 WAC) were led by Ike Okoye with 15. Paul Noonan added 14 and Jamar Greene 10.

    Trailing by 10 at halftime, Boise State went on a 11-4 run to start the second half, but could never catch the Aggies, who shot 48 percent from the field in the half to Boise State's 33 percent.

    Utah State jumped out to a 12-3 lead in the first half, before Boise State went on a 14-5 run of their won, eventually taking the lead 24-22 on a 3-pointer by Anthony Thomas. Utah State, however, led 43-33 at halftime thanks in part to a half-court shot by Wesley as the horn sounded.
