Something incredible. The Aggies did what little they could do. They fouled. They got some steals. They made some shots. In a hurry, their desperate scraping added up to something much bigger. In the final 1:24 of their first-round Mountain West Tournament game against Colorado State, the Aggies (18-13) summoned a 16-3 run t...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Then Utah State chose him for two more. It’s hard to say who else they’d rather have take them. On a team that has lacked consistency this year, Butterfield has been a constant. His numbers aren’t always great, but his effort is. And when the Aggies need him, he has a way of stepping up into those big moments. He may never have bigger moments in his career than the 3-pointer he made with 42 seconds left, followed by the go-ahead fre...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The Aggies have followed it successfully. Twice. That doesn’t make taking on Colorado State (16-15, 7-11) much easier. The Rams know how to bump, and it makes for tough, defense-first games. But at least Utah State (17-13, 7-11) is working with a little extra confidence. “We know what we did right the first two times,” Spencer Butterfield said. “We just gotta be able to do that a third time and be determined on defense.

Jarred Shaw and Spencer Butterfield earned all-Mountain West honorable mention for Utah State. Those were the only two honors for the Aggies, who finished 7-11 in conference play in their first season in the league. San Diego State, which finished atop the standings, got many of the top honors.

Utah State’s five — Spencer Butterfield, Sean Harris, Preston Medlin, TeNale Roland and Jarred Shaw — each got a jersey. They each got a start. And prevailing through a few slow patches, they collectively got a win. The 65-54 result over Wyoming could be the final stop for those five Aggies in the Spectrum, but they made it work.

But for Sean Harris, it’s a career. The only Aggies senior who hasn’t been a regular starter made his first career start Wednesday night. And it was no ceremonial bit: Harris played the first nine minutes of the game without a break, then subbed in during the second half. His minutes included scoring his first-ever baskets for Utah State. With a four-point night, Harris easily secured a new career best. And it meant the world to him. “This is somet...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

By far the most experienced Aggie, Medlin was there for some of the Aggies’ best seasons. He is among the last Utah State players to have gone to the Big Dance. He’s seen Stew Morrill’s 500th win as well as his 600th. The Texan is strongly linked to the Aggies’ history. And he’s hoping he and his fellow seniors aren’t yet done carving their place in it. “It’s just one of those thin...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The senior guard never misses a chance to hoist up a few extra shots. After practice, after games, he’s out there, putting in the extra time. You can watch it. But what goes on after those last extra shots, almost no one sees. Every day, Butterfield spends time in an ice bath to soothe his hip, which he required surgery on in the offseason.

But Spencer Butterfield has a more personal night coming up on Saturday at San Jose State, where he will play a mere two hours from his hometown. Many of his family and friends are gladly driving the distance to get a final live look at Butterfield in an Aggie uniform. “They’re calling it my senior night,” he said. “That’s how I’m looking at it: It’s like my senior night on the road.

But Utah State also couldn’t stop Fresno State from scoring.
