FRESNO, Calif. (AP) Chandler Hutchison had 21 points, 10 rebounds and four assists for his eighth double-double of the season, Alex Hobbs scored 15 of his 20 points in the first half and Boise State beat Fresno State 70-64 on Tuesday night.

The win snaps a two-game losing streak against the Bulldogs and also gives the Broncos their first win at Fresno State since Feb. 23, 2013.

Hutchison missed two free throws with 1:35 left, but Christian Sengfelder grabbed the miss and put it back for a 64-58 lead. After a Fresno State 3, Hutchison had another offensive board and hit two free throws for a five-point advantage.

Deshon Taylor pulled Fresno State within 66-64 by scoring 13 of the Bulldogs' final 16 points. But Boise State made four straight free throws to seal it.

Sengfelder added 13 points with six rebounds for Boise State (14-3, 4-1 Mountain West). Hutchison, who is tied for third in program history with 19 double-doubles, was just 3 of 12 from the field but hit 15 of 18 free throws.

Hutchison now has 1,151 career points, putting him in 14th place on the school’s all-time scoring list. He passed Mikey Thompson (1,138) and Nick Duncan (1,141) with tonight’s 21 points.

Taylor, the third-leading scorer in the Mountain West Conference at 18.9 points per game, was held to 15 points on 2-of-13 shooting for Fresno State (12-6, 2-3). He made his first field goal of the game on a long 3-pointer with 4:20 remaining in the second half.

There were 52 fouls between the two teams. Coincidentally, the last time Boise State was involved with a game with 50+ fouls was last season at Fresno State (Jan. 14, 2017), as the two teams combined for 57 fouls.

The Broncos will now return home to Taco Bell Arena to face San Diego State on Saturday, Jan. 13 with tip set for 8 p.m. (MT). The game will broadcast on ESPN2.
