LOGAN, Utah — The student section at a Utah State basketball game paid tribute to one of their own players whose home country of Ukraine is under attack.

Scott Garrard, a play-by-play radio broadcaster for USU Athletics, posted a photo on Twitter showing hundreds of students holding up blue and yellow colored paper to replicate the Ukrainian flag design as Max Shulga checked in to the game.

Shulga is a sophomore guard for the Aggies and is from Kyiv, Ukraine.

"The place erupted when Shulga scored on a driving layup soon after this moment," Garrard wrote.
