DENVER (AP) -- Brett Olson scored 18 points and Denver extended its winning streak to seven games with a 68-57 victory over Utah State on Saturday.

Chase Hallam added 14 points, Chris Udofia had 13 and Jalen Love 10 for the Pioneers (11-7, 7-1 Western Athletic), who shot 57 percent from the floor and hit 10 of 19 3-pointers. Denver also had a season-low three turnovers, none in the first half when it jumped out to a 36-25 lead.

Marvin Jean led Utah State (14-3, 5-2) with 14 points. Jarred Shaw added 10 points and nine rebounds. The Aggies were without leading scorer and preseason WAC player of the year Preston Medlin and third-leading scorer Kyisean Reed, who both suffered injuries Thursday at New Mexico State.

The Pioneers opened the second half with a 17-5 run to build its biggest lead of the game at 53-31 with 12:06 remaining. The Aggies trailed by double digits the rest of the way.
