The San Jose State men's basketball team ended its regular season with a 13th consecutive loss, falling 90-67 to Texas State in a Western Athletic Conference game Saturday night at the Event Center.

Chris Cunningham scored 17 points for the Spartans (9-19, 3-13), who will play UTSA at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the first round of the WAC tournament in Las Vegas.

Joel Wright sparked the Bobcats (10-21, 5-13) with 25 points. Texas State hit 33 of 51 shots from the field, including 11 of 17 3-point shots.

"They (Texas State) started out making everything, and their strong shooting continued the whole game," SJSU coach George Nessman said. "They just wouldn't let us catch up. They kept making shots.

"When your defense can't get stops, it's really hard to win a basketball game. ... We really don't have the firepower to play with a team when we give up 90 points."

UCLA 61, Washington 54: Shabazz Muhammad scored 21 points and the No. 23 Bruins clinched the Pac-12 Conference regular-season title with a win over the host Huskies.
