Bulldogs' fast start leaves Long Beach St. in wake, 106-70

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) Jaron Hopkins scored 26 points and Deshon Taylor added 23 points and Fresno State was never threatened in its 106-70 win over Long Beach State Saturday night.

Hopkins finished 10-of-13 shooting and was 6 of 7 from the free-throw line while Taylor shot 6 of 11 and missed only one of 10 free throws.

Fresno State (6-2) raced to a 21-1 lead as Hopkins scored 10 points all on layups. Temidayo Yussuf's 3-point play off a jumpshot 7 1/2 minutes in was the 49ers' first field goal.

In the first half, the Bulldogs shot 61.3 percent (19 of 31) including 7 for 13 from 3-point range and grabbed 21 rebounds with eight on the offensive end. Long Beach St. (3-5) was 8 for 23 shooting and managed just eight boards.

The Bulldogs led 51-28 at halftime and extended it to 72-40 when Jahmel Taylor buried a 3-pointer with 12:19 left. Taylor scored 17 shooting 5 for 6 from the 3-point line.

Yussuf lead the 49ers 13 points.
