San Jose State is one of the most pleasant surprises around. After going 1-17 in the Mountain West last season, the Spartans are 7-6 in conference play this year. They've been especially impressive at home, going 10-2 SU. Now they host a Lobos team that's dropped four in a row and may still be without senior Jaelen House, the Arizona State transfer who averages 17.3 points and 4.6 assists. He's a gametime decision with a hamstring injury that's sidelined him two straight games. In those contests, New Mexico lost by double digits to two of the conference's three worst teams -- Wyoming and Air Force. Lay the small number as San Jose State avenges a 20-point loss in The Pit.
