Idaho wins, so does San Jose State

It was a night for the home teams as Idaho snapped a losing streak and San Jose State earned revenge over an earlier loss to Hawaii.

Host Idaho owned just a 32-30 lead over Fresno State at halftime but quickly expanded that and was ahead 62-47 with 6:15 remaining in the game. The contest ended with the Vandals righting their ship 74-59. Mac Hopson led the way with 21 points.

It was a Bulldog squad without Paul George and one that couldn't generate the offense that led Fresno to an 88-77 win over Nevada in the preceding FSU game.

Foul trouble on Bulldog wunderkind Greg Smith also hampered FSU's offensive efficiency, taking away yet another point producer.


San Jose State won a bit of a yawner over Hawaii 83-60.

The Spartans led 41-32 at halftime as a late UH scoring rush cut the point differential to nine. But SJSU took a 51-40 lead at the 14:39 mark to 59-40 and the outcome was known.

Adrian Oliver went off again tonight, finishing with 33 points. Roderick Flemings paced Hawaii with 19.
