SAN DIEGO (AP) Max Hoetzel, Trey Kell and Jeremy Hemsley scored 12 points apiece for San Diego State, which snapped a three-game losing streak by beating San Jose State 76-61 on Tuesday night.

Hoetzel hit four 3-pointers overall and had nine rebounds. Zylan Cheatham and Montaque Gill-Caeser each scored 10 for SDSU.

Brandon Clarke scored 25 for the Spartans (8-7, 1-3).
