RENO, Nev. (AP)—Tyler Tiedeman scored 27 points and led five Boise State players in double figures as the Broncos posted a 95-80 Western Athletic Conference win at Nevada Saturday night.
Boise State used a stellar shooting performance from the perimeter to hand Nevada its worst home loss since a 101-57 defeat at the hands of Stanford in December 1998.
The Broncos knocked down 13-of-22 3-point attempts en route to victory. They hit five of their first six shots from beyond the arc in the first half and their first six from long range to start the second half.
Tiedeman and Anthony Thomas both buried four 3-pointers for Boise State. Thomas and Reggie Larry chipped in 16 points apiece for the Broncos. Matt Bauscher and Matt Nelson each added 10 points for Boise State.
Boise State (13-5, 4-2 WAC) trailed 52-47 after Nevada?s Demarshay Johnson threw down a dunk at the 17:10 mark of the second half. Boise State responded with a 22-3 outburst that gave it a 69-55 advantage with 9:09 remaining to play. The Broncos converted all six of their 3-point shots in the key spurt and never trailed again.
Nevada (10-7, 2-2 WAC) was led by Marcelus Kemp and Armon Johnson, who scored 23 and 20 points respectively. Brandon Fields and Johnson contributed 16 and 10 points to Nevada?s losing cause.
