The Golden Eagles' bench outscored State's 35-12 behind Jackson, who had a team-high 15 points. Guard Terrell Lipkins had 14, as did Dreher off the bench. Faulkner finished with 11 and Xavier Humphrey had 10.
"We just have to work together as a team and put in quality minutes," said Humphrey, who added three rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots to his statistics.
State made a run at the Golden Eagles, taking away some of the momentum and getting the lead to 44-32 after a Jalen Walker layup.
Then, UC went on a 14-4 run to take a 58-36 lead with 12:24 remaining.
"They got going and it's nice to have guys who have been around like X (Humphrey) and Evan Faulkner) to keep us at an even keel," Downey said.
A 3-pointer by Faulkner pushed the lead to 56-32 with 14:21 left.
State had 18 fewer shots that UC and were just 4-of-13 (.308), which is actually higher than their season percentage (.269).
Also, the Golden Eagles - the top free-throw shooting team in the conference -- didn't miss any of their 11 free throw attempts, and State was 10-of-18.
