Data: Utah State's victory in the Big West tournament final was particularly sweet because the Aggies were left out of last year's NCAA tournament despite being ranked in the top 25 and having a 25-3 record. Utah State earned its fifth NCAA tournament appearance in the past eight seasons in impressive fashion, ending Pacific's 34-game conference win streak in the final. The Aggies held the Tigers without a field goal for 10 minutes. Carroll, who scored 22 points, became the first freshman to ever earn tournament MVP honors. Utah State has not lost a game by more than four points since Jan. 13, when it lost at Pacific by seven.
Record: 20-9, 12-4. Past 10: 8-2.
Coach: John Brady (2-2 in NCAAs).
