Utah St tops No. 5 San Diego State for Mountain West title

LAS VEGAS (AP) Sam Merrill once again lifted Utah State to a Mountain West Tournament title.

Merrill hit a contested 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds to play to give the Aggies a 59-56 victory over No. 5 San Diego State and clinch a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season on Saturday.

The Aztecs (30-2), who led by as many 16 points in the first half, had a chance to force overtime, but Malachi Flynn's 3-point shot from just beyond half court rattled in and out at the buzzer.
