Feb 6 2011 - 12:10am

LOGAN -- 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 at the Smith Spectrum.

"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.

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. USU missed only one shot in the first 8 minutes of the game.
