Donaven Dorsey scored 17 points and Robert Upshaw tied his own school record with seven blocked shots, powering Washington to a 78-56 rout of San Jose State on Thursday night in the opening round of the Wooden Legacy tournament.
It was the third time in four games that the 6-foot-11 Upshaw had at least seven blocks. He didn’t have any in the Huskies’ previous game, a 76-69 win over Pacific at Key Arena on Sunday. Nigel Williams-Goss finished with 13 points, eight assists and six rebounds.
Rashad Muhammad scored 15 to lead the Spartans (1-4) who shot 31 percent from the field. San Jose State also played at Cal State Fullerton’s Titan Gym in its previous game, a 70-66 loss to Fullerton last Saturday.
Washington (4-0) built a 40-23 halftime lead, shooting 53.8 percent from the field while holding San Jose State to 28.1 percent (9 for 32).
Long Beach State 73, Western Michigan 55: Mike Caffey scored 18 points and keyed a second-half run to lead the 49ers over the Broncos at the Wooden Legacy.
The 49ers trailed by five with 8 minutes left when they went on a 16-0 run that included five consecutive free throws and Caffey’s rally-capping 3-pointer. After a pair of free throws by Western Michigan’s Connor Tava, the 49ers finished on a 11-2 run.
Tyler Lamb added 14 points for the 49ers.
