DALLAS (AP) -- Eric Castro scored 16 points and had 11 rebounds as SMU snapped a two-game slide with a 66-46 win over San Jose State on Thursday night.
Bryan Hopkins added 14 points and had an SMU-home record nine steals for the Mustangs (10-10, 5-7 Western Athletic Conference). Justin Isham and Devon Pearson also added 11 points each.
Castro is now six points shy of becoming the 34th player in school history to reach 1,000 for his career.
Marquin Chandler led San Jose State (6-14, 3-8) with 24 points and 18 rebounds. The Spartans shot just 33 percent from the floor.
It was the 15th consecutive conference road loss for San Jose State, which has not won a WAC game on the road in two years.
