Las Vegas, NV (Sports Network) - Jeromie Hill registered a double-double with 21 points and a game-high 10 rebounds as he helped guide the Roadrunners of Texas-San Antonio to a 67-49 win over the San Jose State Spartans in the first round of the Western Athletic Conference Tournament at Orleans Arena.

Also scoring in double figures for the ninth-seeded Roadrunners (9-21), who now advance to the quarterfinals on Thursday where they will battle top-seeded Louisiana Tech, were Kannon Burrage with 20 points, Edrico McGregor 14 on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting, and Michael Hale III with 10 points to go along with five rebounds and five assists.

The eighth-seeded Spartans (9-20) were paced by LaVanne Pennington who dropped in 21 points, but shot just 1-of-9 behind the 3-point line. Chris Cunningham pitched in with 12 points and a team-best nine rebounds in the setback.
