LOGAN, Utah – Utah State head men’s basketball coach Craig Smith has announced the addition of 6-foot-4-inch guard Carson Bischoff to the roster for the 2019-20 season. Bischoff joins the Aggies after a year at Treasure Valley Community College and will have two years of eligibility remaining.
“We are thrilled to announce Carson will be joining our program,” Smith said. “Carson is a lights-out shooter that really knows how to play. He really fits our program’s culture, as he is highly competitive and is all about the team.”

Bischoff’s scoring output included 13 games with 20 or more points and three games with 30 or more, including a season-high 34 points against Mt. Hood Community College. Bischoff shot 43.0 percent (135-of-314) from the floor, 39.1 percent (75-of-192) from behind the 3-point line and 81.0 percent (68-of-84) at the free throw line.
Bischoff led TVCC on the glass, averaging 6.6 rebounds per game and pulling down five or more rebounds in 13 games. Bischoff recorded a season-high 12 rebounds, making up one of five double-double performances during the year. Additionally, Bischoff averaged 2.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game.
