Give the Aggies credit - they're not going to shy away from bringing decent competition to their Gossner Foods Holiday Classic (this year is edition No. 12), and playing them straight up. In tonight's opening game, they take on the 6-4 Trojans of Arkansas-Little Rock, ducking 2-8 Binghamton.
Utah State is 6-3 (0-1 in Hawaii) and once again among the league leaders in field goal percentage (No. 4, 52%) -- but most importantly, they're 2-0 in G!O!T!N! action this season. They're led by an outside-inside combo of scintillating sophomore Jaycee Carroll (18.3 ppg) and Nate Harris (15.3 ppg, 7.2 rpg). UALR, the two-time defending champs of the Sun Belt East division, feature rebounding monster Rashad Jones-Jennings (13.5 ppg, 12.8 rpg), who broke our computers with his 30-board performance
a couple weeks back. Winner gets those Binghamton Bearacats, if they can manage to sneak by 8-2 Idaho State.
