Boise State Broncos Close Non-Conference Season with 64-56 Win Over UC-Davis

Broncos salvage win over the Aggies.

BOISE, Idaho--The Boise State basketball team woke up in time to defeat sub-.500 UC-Davis tonight 64-56 in Taco Bell Arena.  The win was the Broncos' 15th straight at home.

The Broncos, plagued by poor shooting and turnovers in the first half, trailed 29-20 before rallying to trail 31-29 at the break.

A three-pointer by Lonnie Jackson in the opening minute of the second half gave Boise State just their second lead of the game, 32-31, but the 4-8 Aggies refused to go quietly.  UC-Davis scored the next seven points to lead 38-32, a lead they did not relinquish until an alley oop pass from Chandler Hutchison resulted in a James Webb III dunk to tie the score at 48.  Anthony Drmic's three-pointer from the corner put the Broncos ahead 51-48, and Boise State did not trail after that.

Webb had 23 points and nine rebounds to pace the Broncos while Drmic had 14 points and Nick Duncan 12.

Drmic passed Coby Karl for fourth place all-time in career scoring at Boise State.  Drmic now has 1,701 points and is 171 behind former teammate Derrick Marks.

Drmic also recorded his 100th career steal to become the second player in Boise State history (after Karl) to register 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 200 assists and 100 steals.

Siler Schneider poured in 21 points to lead the Aggies and Neal Monson added 14.

Boise State (9-4) opens Mountain West Conference play Saturday night at 5 against Colorado State.
