HONOLULU (AP) - Morgan Grim hit the go-ahead layup with seven seconds remaining as Utah State defeated the University of Hawaii men's basketball team 61-60 on Saturday night at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Brockeith Pane scored 20 points and Preston Medlin added 19 for the Aggies (17-14, 8-6 Western Athletic Conference), who clinched the No. 4 seed in the conference tournament in Las Vegas and will play fifth-seeded Loui-siana Tech on Thursday.

On his game-deciding basket, Grim dribbled into the lane and banked in a short shot.

The Rainbow Warriors (15-15, 6-8) turned the ball over on their final possession.

Josten Thomas had 19 points to lead UH, which has lost five straight and will be the No. 6 seed, facing third-seeded Idaho in the first round.

The Aggies tied the score at 59-59 on Medlin's baseline jumper with 59 seconds remaining. Thomas hit a free throw with 37 seconds left to put the Warriors up one.
