Utah Valley @ Utah State

What to Know

The Utah State Aggies and the Utah Valley Wolverines are opening their 2022-2023 seasons against one another at 9 p.m. ET Monday at Dee Glen Smith Spectrum. Utah State ended up 18-16 last year and got to the first round of the NIT before being knocked out by the Oregon Ducks 83-72. While Utah Valley was not exactly top dog last season, they did wrap up the year with a winning record of 20-12.

A couple last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Aggies were 22nd best (top 6%) in field goal percentage, finishing the 2021-2022 season at 47.60%. But Utah Valley held their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39.40%, good for 18th in college basketball (top 5%). We'll see which of these strengths -- offense or defense -- will win out.

Utah State has the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
