There hasn’t been a Battle of the Brothers in basketball since Utah State defeated the Utah Utes in 2010 in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.
The rivalry will be rekindled next year in the Beehive Classic at Vivint Arena but fans can still enjoy this red vs. blue matchup in the women’s basketball version.
The Utah State Aggie women’s basketball team enters this game with six wins and only one loss. The Lady Utes enter this game undefeated and are beating their opponents by an average margin of 18 points per game.
Aggie guard Rachel Brewster led USU to a win against Idaho State as she scored a game high 22 points. The Utes are favored to win as they defeated the Southern Utah Thunderbirds by 26 points. This same team from Cedar City defeated the Aggies by double digits.
In a season where the Aggie men are going through a rough patch, it is crucial that the Aggie women continue to build a winning program.
After all, the only thing that can compete with the long rivalry of the Battle of the Brothers is the Slaying of the sisters.
