LOGAN, Utah (AP) Jalen Moore scored 20 points to help Utah State beat Idaho State 69-56 in the World Vision Classic on Friday night.

JoJo McGlaston added 14 points and Darius Perkins and David Collette scored 13 apiece for Utah State (6-4), which has now won 15 straight against Idaho State (3-7).

The Aggies opened the game with a 12-2 run, during which Moore hit a pair of 3's and Perkins had a 3-pointer and a three-point play, and never trailed.

A layup by Nnamdi Ezenwa pulled Idaho State within one about 3 1/2 minutes into the second half, but the Bengals went scoreless over the next 5 minutes and 31 seconds and Utah State extended its lead to 56-41 with 7:11 left. The Aggies led by double digits the rest of the way.

Ajak Magot led Idaho State with 12 points and nine rebounds. Jeffrey Solarin added 11 points and 10 boards.
