Broncos Get Third Straight Win with 75-57 Victory Over the Vandals

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Coby Karl scored 24 points to lead the Boise State Broncos past the Idaho Vandals 75-57 Saturday night.

Reggie Larry added 14 points and Seth Robinson added 13 for the Broncos (11-8, 5-3 WAC).

Keoni Watson led Idaho (3-17, 1-7) with 21 points. Trevor Morris added 11 points for the Vandals, which have now lost 11-straight games to their southern rivals in the Western Athletic Conference, dating back to 2001.

Boise State ran wild in the second half, while Idaho fell apart. The Broncos quickly overcame an 8-point Vandal lead at the half, opening the second half on a 9-0 run. BSU's Kenny Wilson hit a 3-pointer with 14:45 left in the game and gave his team a 43-42 lead it never relinquished.

Karl and Robinson led the Broncos after halftime, scoring 16 and 11 of their total points after the break.

Idaho, which led by as many as 10 points twice in the first half, floundered after halftime. The Vandals hit just three second half field goals, shooting 16 percent (3-for-19). Two of Idaho's three field goals came from 3-point land.

The Vandals also turned the ball over nine times in the second, while BSU committed just three miscues.

The Broncos struggled from the field in the first half, shooting just 33 percent (11-for-33). That included a 1-for-8 performance from the 3-point line. BSU hit six 3-pointers in the second half.

Idaho connected on six first-half 3-pointers, but finished the game 8-for-25 from beyond the arc.
