Yussuf, first-half runs help LBSU beat CS Fullerton 81-73

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) Temidayo Yussuf had his first double-double of the season and Long Beach State used two first-half runs to pull away for an 81-73 win over CS Fullerton on Saturday night.

Yussuf finished with a season-high 19 points and tied his season best with 14 rebounds. Gabe Levin also scored 19 points, Deishaun Booker added 14 and Jordan Roberts and Edon Maxhuni had 11 points apiece for Long Beach State (10-12, 4-2 Big West).

Maxhuni hit two 3-pointers and Yussuf scored six points during a 19-4 run that gave the 49ers a 13-point lead 6 1/2 minutes in and Fullerton (11-7, 4-2) trailed the rest of the way. Khalil Ahmad's dunk pulled the Titans within seven points late in the first half, but LBSU closed on a 13-3 run, including six points by Booker, to take a 46-29 lead into the break. Fullerton trailed by 20 in the final minutes before scoring the last 12 points.
