San Jose, Calif. --- The San José State men's basketball team defeated Dominican University, 95-61, in an exhibition game inside The Event Center on Sunday afternoon.

It was the debut for new San José State head coach Jean Prioleau and six of his players. Playing in his first game as a Spartan, Oumar Barry scored 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting and grabbed seven rebounds. Barry's fellow 6-foot-11 center Ashtin Chastain added 13 points and both big men drilled a three in the game.

San José State led by four, 25-21, with 8:32 left in the first half. Then Caleb Simmons and Ryan Welage hit back-to-back threes and Keith Fisher III scored five straight points as part of a 29-9 Spartans run to close the half. SJSU sank 11 free throws during the stretch and finished the game 30-of-36 from the stripe.


 

 

The Spartans outrebounded the Penguins 49-27, and forced the visitors from San Rafael, Calif., to commit 25 turnovers. San José State turned the ball over 23 times.

San José State shot 52.7 percent (29-55) from the floor while holding Dominican to 37.0 percent (20-54).

Jeremiah Gray led the Penguins with 14 points and Christian Futch joined him in double-figure scoring with 13 points.
