Final Stats

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Jeff Elorriaga made a school-record 10 3-pointers and scored 30 points to lead Boise State to a 105-49 win over Corban on Sunday, at Taco Bell Arena.

Elorriaga was 10-of-16 from 3-point range, breaking the previous record of nine set by Abe Jackson on Dec. 9, 2000. Elorriaga had eight 3-pointers at halftime, including five during a four-minute and 30-second stretch in the middle of the period as Boise State pulled away. His 10 triples are the most by anybody in NCAA Division I this season and an all-time Mountain West record.

Kenny Buckner posted a double-double with 23 points and 10 rebounds for the Broncos, who also got double-digit scoring games from Anthony Drmic (11) and Joe Hanstad (10). Buckner's career-high 23 points came on 11-of-13 shooting from the floor.

Elorriaga eclipsed his previous career high of 17 points just 11 minutes into the game, eventually becoming the third Bronco to reach the 30-point plateau this season. He, Derrick Marks and Anthony Drmic are the only trio of Boise State teammates to score at least 30 points in a game during the same season.

Boise State (10-2) scored the game's first 14 points and never trailed against Corban (5-8), an NAIA Division II program. Multiple big runs in the first half led to a 62-24 advantage at intermission. It is the most first-half points scored by a Bronco team in at least 20 years.

The Broncos shot 64.7 percent (22-of-34) in the opening 20 minutes. They cooled off in the second half, but still tallied 105 points for the game, the 13th-highest single-game total in school history.

Josiah Sebens scored 12 points, and Andrew Evans had 11 for the Warriors, who were outrebounded 56-21.

Boise State's 10-2 record is its best start through 12 games since 1994-95, when it was also 10-2. The Broncos return to action Jan. 2, at Texas-Arlington. The game is scheduled to tip at 6 p.m. (MT) and can be heard on the Bronco Radio Network.
