LOGAN, Utah (AP) - Xavier Thames scored 31 points, including 10 in overtime, and No. 7 San Diego State held off pesky Utah State 74-69 on Saturday night for its 17th straight victory.
Thames made the go-ahead basket in the extra session to help the Aztecs (18-1, 7-0 Mountain West) win for the 16th time in their last 17 overtime games.
Spencer Butterfield had 19 points and Jalen Moore added a career-high 16 for the Aggies (12-7, 2-5), who lost at home for the second time this season.
Butterfield hit a 3-pointer over two defenders with 2.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime. He drained another 3 to put Utah State up 62-61 with 3:03 left, but Thames put a halt to the rally.
