SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Jamaal Franklin scored 19 of his 28 points in the first half and had 12 rebounds as No. 25 San Diego State bounced back from a 13-point loss to No. 8 Syracuse by routing San Diego Christian 91-57 in their home opener Tuesday night.

The game had been scheduled for Sunday night, but was pushed back when SDSU's season-opening game against Syracuse on the USS Midway aircraft carrier was postponed from Friday night to Sunday afternoon because of the threat of rain. Syracuse won 62-49.

Chase Tapley scored 18 for SDSU (1-1).

The game counted as an exhibition for the Hawks from suburban El Cajon, who got 15 points from Kevin Dawson and 14 from Kwaminique Brandon.
