2019 NCAA tournament bracket projection for Utah State Aggies

Craig Smith was not supposed to have this kind of debut season coaching the Utah State Aggies. No one is. When Smith jumped from South Dakota to Logan he inherited a program that hadn't been to the NCAA tournament since 2011 and didn't appear to be a threat to get back this season. Much of the same team that went 17-17 a year ago was back and the Aggies were picked to finish ninth in the Mountain West Conference. Smith proceeded to top all first-year coaches nationally in wins and winning percentage on his way to MWC Coach of the Year. Can that magic touch possibly continue in March?
