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.
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.
Ben Simmons' versatile game bears a strong resemblance to Draymond Green.
