Big for a couple of reasons in my opinion.
First and foremost, they showed that they can close out a game. Sure it was shaky offensively in the end and Utah State probably is going to shoot the ball better than 23 percent from long range, but the Aggies had too much athleticism. Quayle was nowhere near Gibson when he pulled up for that jumper and it was there whenever Gibson wanted it.
They won scoring a season low 55 points committing a season low 10 turnovers while the UtAgs turned it over 15 times. They also did it without JY contributing offensively at least. Youngdidn't have his best shooting night and he turned it over four times, but he will have his off nights. A good way to tell if Young is effective is his free throw shooting attempts. He only had two tonight.
He will be back. And now the Aggies have a great opportunity to defend home court against a Nevada team that just lost at Louisiana Tech.
