SDSU downs No. 25 Marquette to capture Wooden Legacy crown

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Xavier Thames put up career-high scoring numbers for the second straight game and led San Diego State to a 67-59 upset over 25th-ranked Marquette in the finals of the Wooden Legacy.

Thames followed up a 26-point effort in San Diego State's (5-1) semifinal victory over Creighton with 29 points on 5-of-6 from 3-point range and 10- of-11 from the free throw line against Marquette (5-3), which led 50-48 late following Deonte Burton's personal 6-0 run.

Minutes later, Winston Shepard broke a 53-53 tie with a pair of free throws and padded the lead with a stepback jumper. Skylar Spencer's tip-in with less than a minute remaining made it a six-point affair, and Thames put the game away from the free throw line.

Shepard and Dakarai Allen netted eight points apiece for SDSU, which has won four in a row, including back-to-back games over ranked opponents.

Burton had 15 points off the bench to pace Marquette in the setback.
