SAN JOSE, Calif. – Spencer Butterfield had 22 points and 10 rebounds, both game highs, for his fifth straight double-double and Utah State routed San Jose State 63-36 Friday night.
Butterfield was 9 for 11 from the field for the Aggies (17-5, 8-4 WAC), who have beaten the Spartans 12 straight times since 2008.
Jarred Shaw and Marcel Davis scored 12 points apiece for Utah State, which has won three in a row, all on the road.
D.J. Brown led San Jose State with 16 points. Chris Cunningham had 10 points and nine rebounds but San Jose State still had its season low in points.
The Spartans (9-14, 3-9) have lost eight in a row since beating independent New Orleans on Jan. 8. That was the last game James Kinney, SJSU's leading scorer, played in before being suspended for violating team policies. Kinney was averaging 20 points per game.
