BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Lazar Hayward scored 26 points and the Golden Eagles made 10 straight free throws down the stretch to hold off Utah State 58-57 Friday in the first round of the West Regional.

Marquette blew a 14-point lead, then rallied from a six-point deficit to win.

Jerel McNeal and Wesley Matthews each scored 14 points for sixth-seeded Marquette (25-9).

Jared Quayle led Utah State (30-5) with 18 points. The 11th-seeded Aggies recovered from a dismal first half by shooting 12-for-20 to start the second half, but couldn't hang on and lost their fourth straight first-round game.
