LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Freshman Marcel Davis scored a career-high 21 points, Preston Medlin added 18 and Utah State crushed Western Oregon 86-57 on Saturday night in an emotional game before an Aggies teammate who had collapsed and had to be revived four days earlier.

The Wolves were within two points early in the second half before Medlin scored six straight and Davis took over — his points the most by an Aggies player this season.

Davis made 9 of 11 shots, including three 3-pointers. He had been averaging 2.2 points.

Aggies players had patches with Danny Berger's number, 12, stitched onto their uniforms, and signs read "We Love Danny" and "Welcome Home."

The 22-year-old Berger had been discharged from a Salt Lake City area hospital earlier Saturday after having a small defibrillator installed under his skin in his chest.
