Chaun Brooks shot a perfect 5-for-5 from 3-point range to lift Drake over San Jose State 82-64 on Saturday.

Drake (6-3) jumped on the Spartans (4-6) early and led 50-27 at halftime.

The Bulldogs built up a 25-point advantage at 52-27 with 18:59 to go and held on from there.

The game marked the return of San Jose State's leading scorer, Demetrius Brown, who had sat out the four previous games with a bacterial infection on his abdomen.

Brown paced the Spartans with 19 points and missed only two of his 10 field-goal attempts.
