SEATTLE -  Kyle Weaver ignited a second-half surge with all 16 of his points tonight as Washington State beat San Diego State, 64-to-54, in a game played in Seattle.

At 11-and-1, the Cougars are off to their best start in 15 years.

Washington State trailed 33-to-23 at halftime, but rallied with a 21-to-nothing run in the second half.

Robbie Cowgill scored a career-high 17 points for W-S-U and Nikola Koprivica added 11. Weaver also had 11 rebounds.

Brandon Heath led San Diego State with 20 points, but went 17 minutes of the second half without scoring.

Heath -- the all-time leading scorer of the Mountain West Conference -- had 13 points in the first half, but Weaver blanketed him in the second half, holding him to 2-for-7 shooting.

San Diego State shot just 45 percent and was held 25 points below its season average. The Cougars begin Pac-10 Conference play next Thursday night at Number One U-C-L-A.
