LAS VEGAS (AP) Sam Merrill grew up a Utah State Aggies fan. Eight years ago, Merrill attended the last Aggie conference tournament championship against Boise State a few miles away at the Orleans Arena when the team was part of the Western Athletic Conference.
On Saturday, Merrill and his Aggie team found themselves in the Mountain West Conference championship at the Thomas & Mack Center. Merrill and his teammates were determined to make their own history.
That they did.
