    LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Alex Elam scored 17 points to lead visiting San Jose State to a 69-56 win Saturday over Long Beach State.

    Menelik Barbary added 12 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.

    Kevin Houston had 16 points, Aaron Nixon had 13 and Shawn Hawkins added 11 for Long Beach State (2-5), which has lost its last three games.

    The Spartans (4-5) ended a three-game losing skid by winning their second road game of the season. It is the first time they've won two on the road since the 2002-03 season.

    Barbary, who made his first six field goals, went 4-for-4 and had four blocks in the first half, when San Jose State took control. After going scoreless for nearly five minutes to begin the game, the Spartans went on a 26-6 run over the next eight minutes.

    Long Beach State shot just 36.2 percent for the game, and was just 2-of-19 from behind the 3-point line. San Jose State shot 45.5 percent.
