No. 25 San Diego St. 91, San Diego Christian 57

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 14, 2012
Jamaal Franklin scored 19 of his 28 points in the first half and had 12 rebounds as No. 25 San Diego State bounced back from a 13-point loss to No. 8 Syracuse by routing San Diego Christian 91-57 in their home opener Tuesday night. The game had been scheduled for Sunday night, but was pushed back when SDSU's season-opening game against Syracuse on the USS Midway aircraft carrier was postponed from Friday night to Sunday afternoon because of the threat of rain. Syracuse won 62-49. Chase Tapley scored 18 for SDSU (1-1). The game counted as an exhibition for the Hawks from suburban El Cajon, who got 15 points from Kevin Dawson and 14 from Kwaminique Brandon. Earlier Tuesday, SDSU freshman forward Winston Shepard was suspended for three games by the NCAA for violating preferential treatment legislation. SDSU said it has appealed the penalty, but the suspension will be enforced during the process. The school declined to provide specifics, saying only that the player inadvertently violated a rule and that the coaching staff reported it to the compliance staff, which self-reported it to the NCAA. Shepard was cited for marijuana possession on campus in late June. A school spokesman said Shepard was disciplined by coach Steve Fisher, which did not involve being suspended from games. San Diego State took a 4-0 lead in the first 23 seconds. The Aztecs got the tip and Franklin made a layup. JJ O'Brien stole the ball and fed Tapley for a layup. DeShawn Stephens scored seven of the Aztecs' next nine points for a 13-8 lead. San Diego State made only four of 19 shots from 3-point range. On Sunday, the Aztecs made only one of 18 3-pointers against Syracuse.
