Utah State men’s basketball is playing this evening for the Mountain West Championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Craig Smith, the team’s head coach, built much of his coaching resume in schools across the state of North Dakota. In the past 20 years, Smith spent time as an assistant coach at Mayville State, where he first coached alongside U-Mary alum Tim Miles. Smith also served as an assistant at Minot State and NDSU before taking on the head coaching position at Mayville State in the mid-2000s.

Smith reunited with Miles in stints at Colorado State and Nebraska before taking on the head coaching job at South Dakota from 2014-2018.

Smith is currently in his first season at the helm of Utah State. The Aggies have gone 27-6 and are currently playing San Diego State for the Mountain West Championship. If Smith’s Aggies win, they will secure a bid to the NCAA Tournament.
