Alex Pavlovic leads us off with his game report of San Jose State's victory over Hawaii.

From their pregame run through a cloud of fog to some impromptu dancing as they waited to warm up for the second half, the San Jose State Spartans were clearly having fun Thursday night, and it'd be hard to blame them.

Led by another ho-hum 30-point performance from Adrian Oliver, San Jose State topped Hawaii 83-60 at the Event Center, avenging a one-point loss in Honolulu earlier this month. The Spartans (12-8, 5-3 Western Athletic Center) are now 9-1 at home, and have 12 wins before the end of January for the first time since 1986...

Four trips to the mainland this season and four losses, three by huge numbers, including last night's 83-60 spanking at the hands of San Jose State before a crowd of 2,651 at the Event Center.

In those four losses, Hawaii (9-12 overall, 2-6 in conference) has lost by a total of 91 points, including a 44-point loss at Utah State on Jan. 11. And it doesn't get any easier tomorrow when UH visits the University of Nevada at Lawlor Events Center...

Seven seconds left in the first half, tie ballgame and Fresno State’s looking to add a seventh 3-pointer to their tally to take a lead into the locker room. Bulldog guard Steven Shepp aims a pass at forward Brandon Sperling and fires.

But the big man in white, Marvin Jefferson, was a half-step ahead. Idaho’s powerful center swiped the ball away and lumbered down the court as the clock ticked down. Jefferson’s 6-10 frame exploded into the air and slammed the ball home as the backboard flashed red. In your face, Fresno State...

Seeking a repeat performance, Fresno State instead flopped Thursday against Idaho, losing 74-59 to give the Vandals their first Western Athletic Conference home win this season.

In front of 1,301 inside the Cowan Spectrum, the Bulldogs committed 21 turnovers, just the opposite of the winning form they flashed against Nevada on Saturday...
