Broncos Win Regular Season Finale

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - La'Shard Anderson scored 18 points as Boise State won its seventh-straight game with a 66-51 victory over San Jose State on Saturday night at Taco Bell Arena.

Paul Noonan scored 12 points on four 3-point baskets, and Westly Perryman added 11 points for the Broncos (19-11, 10-6 Western Athletic Conference).

WAC scoring leader Adrian Oliver had 30 points for San Jose State (15-14, 5-11), which was held to season lows in points and shooting percentage (29.1).

The winning streak is Boise State's longest since the 2003-04 squad also won seven in a row.

The Spartans cut the deficit to seven at 52-45 with under six minutes to play, but Anderson kept the Broncos at a safe distance. The senior made one of Boise State's 11 3-pointers less than 30 seconds later to stretch the lead back to double figures. San Jose State got no closer than nine points afterward.

Daequon Montreal pulled down a game-high nine rebounds.

Will Carter added 11 points and led the Spartans with eight rebounds.

The Broncos will enter next week's WAC Tournament as the two seed, earning a bye to the semifinals. Boise State will take the court Friday, March 11, in Las Vegas.
