Morrill said earlier in the week that Utah State’s younger players could earn minutes if they were productive on the floor. Freshman JoJo McGlaston made that push Saturday night.He finished with career highs with 8 points and 3 assists. A shot he made in the second half — a 3-pointer in the face of Fresno’s Tyler Johnson while being fouled — was a high point in the contest. McGlaston ended up 3-for-5 from the field with three assists.Still, Morrill said, his weak spots did show. Johnson did take a little advantage of the rookie on the defensive end, hitting a few shots while McGlaston was guarding him.
But all-in-all, it was positive, Morrill said. His teammates agreed."I feel like he affected the game," Jarred Shaw said. "He just took what was there. He got some threes, I think he got in the lane and made a floater. I think that just gave him some confidence to play better."
