Utah State survives Nicholls State 79-72

LOGAN, Utah (AP) Kyisean Reed and Jared Shaw each put up a double-double, Utah State shot nearly 56 percent from the field and barely managed to withstand a furious second-half run by Nicholls State to win 79-72 in the World Vision Challenge on Thursday night.

Reed scored 20 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked four shots. Shaw scored 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting and pulled 11 rebounds.

Utah State (7-1) led 54-33 after a dunk by Reed with 14:06 to play but that's when the Colonels mounted a comeback, going on a 35-17 tear capped off by a Dantrell Thomas' dunk to make it 71-68 with 2:21 remaining.

Thomas had 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Nicholls State (1-6) scored 17 points off 13 Aggie turnovers and shot an even 50 percent from the field in the second half, going 18 for 36.

T.J. Carpenter had 23 points to lead the Colonels and Fred Hunter had 17 points and 10 rebounds.

Derrius Guice leaves Redskins game in Green Bay after big hit to the knee (VIDEO)

Derrius Guice leaves Redskins game in Green Bay after big hit to the knee (VIDEO)

GREEN BAY -- Redskins running back Derrius Guice ripped off a 23-yard run down the right sideline of Lambeau Field before he was tackled hard by Packers safety Darnell Savage. The hit came in low with direct contact to Guice's knee and leg. It was a clean hit, but hard. 

After the collision Guice stayed down. He looked to be in significant pain and a host of teammates including Adrian Peterson and Dwayne Haskins came over to check on him. Eventually, after being tended to by trainers, Guice walked off the field under his own power. He immediately went into the on-field blue medical tent with Redskins medical staff. 

Redskins PR announced Guice questionable to return due to a knee injury.

The Redskins drafted Guice in the second round in 2018, and unfortunately, he's dealt with significant injuries throughout his NFL career. He missed his entire rookie season after he tore his left ACL. In Week 1 this season, Guice tore his meniscus in his right knee and missed eight games. 

Stay tuned for more information on this developing situation.
