OREM, Utah (AP) - Shane Rector sank a free throw with one second to play in overtime to give Utah State an 80-79 win over Utah Valley on Saturday night.

Rector’s winning foul shot - his second of two - came after he first tied the game at 79 following a back-and-forth battle for dominance throughout the overtime period.

Koby McEwen led the Aggies (5-4) with 21 points. Rector finished with 18 points and Jalen Moore added 15.

Conner Toolson notched his first career double-double with 24 points and 11 rebounds for the Wolverines (5-4). Isaac Neilson added 16 points and 14 rebounds.

The Wolverines led 38-32 at the break but Utah State battled back and a dunk by Rector put the Aggies on top 71-70 with just over a minute to go. Neilson tied it at 71 on a free throw with 52 seconds remaining in regulation, sending the game into overtime.
