San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Xavier Thames scored a game-high 15 points in seventh-ranked San Diego State's 75-50 drubbing of San Jose State on Wednesday.

Winston Shepard and Skylar Spencer added 12 points apiece, with Shepard also contributing nine rebounds and six assists in the Aztecs' (17-1, 6-0 MWC) 16th-straight triumph. The lone blemish on the season came against No. 1 Arizona on Nov. 14.
