GAME NOTES: Both the San Jose State Spartans and the Utah State Aggies look to rebound from Mountain West-opening losses as they clash in Logan in conference play.

San Jose State had a four-game winning streak snapped by Nevada, 62-50, in the Spartans' Mountain West opener on Wednesday, dropping them below the .500 mark this season with an overall record of 6-7.

Utah State is in a similar state of mind, as the Aggies had a five-game win streak interrupted by Air Force, 73-72, on Wednesday. Utah State lost back-to- back games earlier this season, but looks to avoid another setback at home against the Spartans.

The Aggies lead the all-time series between the programs, 50-21. Utah State has had a serious advantage in recent years, as the Aggies have won the past 12 meetings.

The Spartans experienced a six-minute scoring drought against Nevada the last time out that allowed the Wolfpack to run out and take the game, 62-50, in the conference opener. Devante Wilson led the Spartans in the game with 18 points on 4-of-9 shooting, including 4-of-7 from 3-point range and a perfect 6-of-6 from the free-throw line. Wilson added five rebounds and an assist. Chris Cunningham was the only other Spartans player in double figures, as he netted 10 points and secured eight rebounds before fouling out.

Wilson is third on the team in scoring, averaging 10.7 ppg and a healthy 4.4 rpg for his team. Rashad Muhammad is the Spartans leader in scoring this season with a 16.4 ppg average on 41.6 percent shooting clip. Cunningham is behind Wilson in scoring with 8.2 ppg, but leads the team averaging 7.2 rpg. He's also tops on the Spartans roster in blocks this season with 14.

Utah State had its third straight game with at least 20 assists against Air Force Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to earn a victory, as the Aggies fell, 73-72, in their Mountain West opener. Preston Medlin led all Aggies scorers with 19 points, shooting 6-of-9 from the floor and a perfect 4-of-4 from the charity stripe. He was one of four Utah State players to record double figures against the Falcons. Spencer Butterfield (16), Jalen Moore (14) and Kyle Davis (11) rounded out the Aggies' top four scorers.

Medlin and Butterfield are two of the team's top scorers, both averaging 14.2 ppg. Jarred Shaw averages 16.1 ppg, but has only played in eight games compared to the 13 of Butterfield and Medlin. Davis averages 10.1 ppg and leads the team in rebounding with an 8.6 rpg line. He's also the team's leader in blocks this season with 20. Medlin leads the team with a 3.8 apg average.

Utah State has one of the better overall records in the Mountain West Conference, but the loss to Air Force set them back early. Expect the Aggies to fight back at home and get their first conference win.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Utah State 80, San Jose State 72
