Behind 26 from James Kinney and 21 from Louis Garrett, the San Jose State Spartans defeated the Seattle Redhawks 76-71 at home.

It was the first time this season that two Spartans each scored 20 or more points in a single game. San Jose State held Seattle to 34.4 percent shooting, and created 20 turnovers.

The first half was tight, with the Spartans taking a 29-28 lead at the break. They gained control with an 11-0 run in the second half, but the Redbirds battled back to take a brief lead with under six minutes to play. However, the Spartans re-gained the lead on a pair of Chris Cunningham buckets and never looked back.

The Spartans are now 3-1 in league play and 8-6 overall. They will face New Orleans at home on Tuesday.
