SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Marcus Graves scored all 18 of his points in the first half to help Sacramento State roll to an 89-40 victory over NAIA-member Westcliff on Thursday night.

The matchup replaced the Hornets-Cal Poly game that was canceled on Nov. 16 due to poor air quality from the Camp Fire.

Sacramento State improved to 4-0 at home and 6-2 overall, its best start since the 1985-86 squad started 6-1. The Hornets face Washington on Dec. 21.

Ethan Esposito added 16 points and Joshua Patton had 10 for Sacramento State. Chibueze Jacobs chipped in with 11 rebounds and nine points.

Richard Serrano scored 10 points to lead Westcliff.

Sacramento State jumped out on a 26-9 run and built a 47-20 halftime advantage. The Hornets stretched the lead to 44 points with about nine minutes remaining.
