Date: February 05, 2011 9:05 PM EDT
  

LOGAN, Utah (AP) - Utah State's students and fans begin chanting ``Up by 20' when the Aggies extend a lead that far. Boise State's players heard it before the first half was over.

Tai Wesley scored 22 points to lead No. 22 Utah State to its 17th straight win, 77-49 over the Broncos on Saturday night.

``I usually like to get in the paint to get started,' said Williams, who was 8 of 11 from the field and hit all six of his free throws. ``But tonight I got squared up and made sure everything was right and that first one went for me.'

The win gives Utah State (22-2, 11-0 Western Athletic Conference) a WAC-record 25-game winning streak in conference play.

Brockeith Pane and Pooh Williams each added 10 points for the Aggies, who led by 34 points with 12:49 to play before Boise State went on a 10-0 run to close the gap somewhat.

``We really got on it early tonight and had a great start,' said Aggies coach Stew Morrill. ``They didn't double Tai much and part of our game plan was to go inside early, so we were able to do that tonight.'

Robert Arnold scored 12 points and Ryan Watkins added 11 for the Broncos (12-11, 5-6), while La'Shard Anderson, who leads the team with 15.1 points a game, went scoreless.

Utah State shot better than 64 percent while pressuring Boise State into a 19-of-56 performance from the field and 14 turnovers.

``I don't know who could have beaten Utah State tonight,' said Boise State coach Leon Rice. ``They were a juggernaut coming out of the gate. When they are like that they are a machine and hard to stop.'

The Broncos opened the scoring before the Aggies broke off a 15-0 run to put the game out of reach early. Utah State missed only one shot in the first 8 minutes of the game, leading to a 43-21 halftime edge. Boise State had nine turnovers and had the ball stolen five times in the half.
