SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Marquin Chandler had 20 points and 14
rebounds to help San Jose State to just its second win ever over
Tulsa, 76-69 on Thursday night.
Michael McFadden scored 19 points and Donta Watson had 12 for
the Spartans (5-12, 2-6 Western Athletic Conference), who snapped a
three game losing streak. San Jose State had lost 10 of its last 11
Jarius Glenn scored 13 of his 19 points in the second half for
Tulsa (4-13, 1-7), which has lost three of its last four.
The victory was the Spartans' first over Tulsa since Jan. 30,
2003, improving their record in the rivalry to 2-17 -- and the
schools played an exciting game despite their spots at the bottom
of the WAC.
The Spartans took their first lead early in the second half, and
held Tulsa scoreless for nearly four minutes down the stretch. Alex
Elam's 3-pointer with 1:50 left gave San Jose State a 69-61 lead.
Glenn hit a jumper to reduce Tulsa's deficit just three points
with 10 seconds remaining. McFadden made two more free throws and
then stole the ball, making a layup at the buzzer for the win.
San Jose State trailed by 14 points in the first half before
making a 15-2 run including eight points by McFadden, including a
3-pointer at the halftime buzzer.
