2019 Tournament PreviewOne of the nation's hottest teams, the Aggies closed out the regular season by winning 17 of their last 18 games en route to a Mountain West tournament championship. Junior guard Sam Miller (21.1, 4.2 apg, 1.1 spg) led the conference in scoring, shooting 37.8 percent from 3-point range, while 6-5 wing Diogo Brito (8.3 ppg, 4.3, rpg, 2.2 apg) shoots 39.6 percent from downtown. The true strength of the team lies on the glass, however. The Aggies rank fifth in the nation in defensive rebounding percentage, with 6-11 freshman center Neemias Queta (11.9 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 2.4 bpg) and 6-8 senior forward Quinn Taylor (8.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg) leading a sizable five-man frontcourt rotation -- Utah State ranks 38th in KenPom's average height metric. With Quadrant 1 wins over Nevada, UC Irvine and St. Mary's, Utah State appears tested enough to at least pose a threat to likely second-round opponent North Carolina should it get past Washington in the 8-9 first-round game.
