The San Jose State Spartans (4-3) use a great second half to beat the North Dakota Fighting Hawks (3-6), 76-51, inside the Provident Credit Union Event Center in San Jose, California.
It’s been a while since we’ve been able to say the Spartans have had a winning record seven or more games into the season and it’s awesome to see!
What a hire Tim Miles was for the program. He’s injected some life into the program that was growing increasingly irrelevant under Jean Prioleau.
Trey Anderson and Trey Smith each scored 17 points respectively for the Spartans.
Ibrahima Diallo grabbed 12 rebounds for SJSU.
SJSU shot 30-of-63 (47.6%) from the field, 11-of-26 (42.3%) from 3-point range, but an abysmal 5-of-10 (50.0%) at the free throw line.
The Spartans committed 18 fouls, which needs to be less than that, but on the bright side committed 10 turnovers which is good.
Outside of the game against Texas, the Spartans have been in every game this season. It’s a big win for SJSU, now let’s hope they can build off of this.
The Spartans will look to pick up their first road victory of the season when they travel to Malibu, California to play the Pepperdine Waves (2-8) on Monday, December 6th. Tipoff is set for 9:00 PM (Central Time) and will be televised online on the WCC Network.
