While you were sleeping

Defending WAC champion Utah State outlasted Nevada 79-72 in overtime on Wednesday night in a rematch of last year's conference tournament final in Reno.

Aggies coach Stew Morill was jubilant in the moments after the game, with his team getting its groove back after opening conference play with losses to New Mexico State and Louisiana Tech.

Jared Quayle scored 21 points, making clutch 3-pointers for Utah State.

Nevada star Luke Babbitt had 26 points and 12 rebounds, but the Wolf Pack ran out of gas after leading by 10 with seven minutes left in regulation. Nevada scored only three points in overtime.
