Utah State vs Missouri Preview

As the SEC runner-up expectations are high, but the Tigers will do well to recognize a cautionary tale in Thursday’s first-round matchup. Utah State head coach Ryan Odom once led No. 16 seed UMCB to victory over No. 1 seed Virginia in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Aggies guard Steven Ashworth leads the team in scoring with 16.3 points per game. Ashworth also leads in assists and steals with 4.5 and 1.2 per game respectively. He’s one of the team’s most-dangerous three-point shooters with a 44.3% mark.
