SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose State's inside tandem of Amber Jackson and Lamisha Augustine combined for 49 points and 26 rebounds to lead the Spartans to a 70-49 win against Utah State here late Saturday night.
"They can score," USU head coach Raegan Pebley of Jackson and Augustiine. "They are two of the top scorers in the conference. That makes San Jose State win some games because they have two players that can score consistently every night."
San Jose State improved to 13-14 overall and 8-8 in the Western Athletic Conference, while Utah State dipped to 3-23 overall and 2-14 in WAC play. SJSU will be the fourth seed in the league tournament, while USU will enter Tuesday's eight-nine play-in game as the ninth-seed and will meet Idaho at 7 p.m. mountain time. The winner of that game will meet top-seeded Louisiana Tech on Wednesday in Reno, Nev.
No other Aggie scored in double figures, but Jenny Gross chipped in eight points and six rebounds. Ashley Rutledge added five points and matched a career-high with six rebounds for the third time in the last four games.
USU shot just 25 percent from the field in the game, while the home-standing Spartans shot 49 percent and out-rebounded the Aggies 42-36.
"We struggled getting some scoring," Pebley said. "Defensively we showed some moments where we played them very well, but overall we struggled."
Looking ahead to the league tournament, USU split the season series with Idaho as the Aggies lost 54-51 at Moscow in Jan. 14 and defeated the Vandals 63-53 in Logan on Feb. 16.
