Utah State unfortunately witnessed the end of their six-game winning streak on Friday. They took a 86-70 bruising from the Aztecs. Utah State didn't live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game.

The loss doesn't tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Great Osobor, who scored 19 points along with five rebounds and three blocks. Ian Martinez was another key contributor, scoring 16 points along with five rebounds.

Meanwhile, it's hard to win when your three-point shooting is a whole 24.8% worse than the opposition, a fact TCU found out the hard way last Thursday. The match between them and the Cougars wasn't a total blowout, but with the Horned Frogs falling 60-45 on the road it was darn close to turning into one. The result shouldn't come as a shock considering that's the fewest points TCU has scored all season.
