OREM -- Utah State (7-2) will play its final road game of the preseason this weekend at Utah Valley (4-5) tonight at the UCCU Center. Game time is 7 p.m.
"They went to Oregon State and got a win, and they are 3-1 at home," USU coach Stew Morrill said. "They are playing pretty well. It is a good challenge for us to go down there. For all the trips that we have made down to Orem to play, this is probably the best Utah Valley team we have faced."

Utah State is averaging 68.9 points and shooting 45.1 percent from the field, 35.5 percent from 3-point range and 68.8 percent at the free throw line.
Utah Valley is 4-5 on the season following its 92-72 road loss at Cincinnati Saturday. The Wolverines are 3-1 at home this year and are led by junior guard Isiah Williams who is averaging 15.0 points and shooting 42.9 percent from the field, 42.6 percent from 3-point range and 86.2 percent at the free throw line.
Senior forward Jordan Swarbrick is also scoring in double-figures as he is averaging 11.2 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.
