San Jose State wins 52-47

A prior obligation kept us from attending the game so here's the game lead from the AP. It is worth noting that in 29 minutes, SJSU limited Ryan Toolson to 4-14 overall shooting, including 0-6 on three-point attempts and that Justin Graham played ironman, being on the court for 39 minutes.

(AP) - Tim Pierce had 14 points and Justin Graham scored four points in the final 1:33 to help San Jose State beat Utah Valley State 52-47 in a non-conference game on Tuesday night.

Graham finished with 13 points, six assists and six rebounds for the Spartans (11-13), who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Ryan Toolson scored 12 points to lead Utah Valley State...

San Jose State played without leading scorer Adrian Oliver for the third straight game...

Without Oliver, the Spartans struggled to score consistently and couldn't put the Wolverines away until Graham sank a pair of free throws with 1:33 remaining and added a short lean-in shot a minute later.

Toolson missed all of Utah Valley State's final three shots, including two 3-point tries. The Wolverines lost for the first time in four games.

Pierce scored eight of his points in the first 3 1/2 minutes of the second half to help San Jose State build a 36-27 lead....
