UC SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Alan Williams is back in a record-tying way. The junior tied a school record and set a career-high with 39 points as UCSB routed South Dakota State 83-64.

Williams also tied the school record with eight blocks in the game and he also pulled down 9 rebounds as the Gauchos ran away from the Jackrabbits in the second half.

Williams had missed the previous two games due to back spasms.

The 3-2 Gauchos play at UCLA on Tuesday.
