Playing in its final game of a three game road-trip, the Utah State women’s basketball team took on the San Jose State Spartans on Saturday afternoon. The Aggies fell to the Spartans 103-80 despite a great shooting effort from freshman Makenlee Williams.
With the loss, USU falls to four games under .500 at 6-10 on the season and 3-2 in the WAC. SJSU improved their record to 5-11 overall and 2-3 in conference play.
Williams had a career-high five 3-pointers and led the team in scoring with 19 points. It was a rough shooting game for Aggies senior Devyn Christensen, who finished with 13 points on 4-25 shooting including 0-11 from beyond the arc.
The Spartans were led by forward Emily Schill, who poured in a game-high 36 points to go along with 17 rebounds, six assists, four steals and two blocks. Guard Ta’Rea Cunnigan also had a good game for SJSU with 26 points and six assists.
Once the Spartans made the first basket of the game, they never looked back. San Jose led from beginning to end and by double-digits for most of the game.
The Aggies’ next game will be Thursday, Jan. 17 at the Spectrum where they will take on New Mexico State in the battle of the Aggies. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
