Logan • It was a bittersweet night for Jarred Shaw, one in which a loss overshadowed a strong performance against one of the nation's best shotblockers.

Shaw went toe-to-toe with UNLV's Khem Birch, scoring 20 points and adding 12 rebounds, but he could not power Utah State to a win. The Aggies lost a 3-game winning streak Saturday afternoon in the 73-62 defeat to the Rebels.

Shaw's first thoughts after the game were on his and his team's shortcomings rather than his high-scoring night.

"I thought we played really hard, we just had some defensive slippage," he said.

Watch the video above to see Shaw talk about the defense, going against Birch and more.
