BOISE, Idaho (AP)—Derrick Marks scored 33 of his career-high 38 points in the second half to lead Boise State to a 78-65 victory over Colorado State on Saturday night.

Marks scored 24 consecutive Boise State points over a 10-minute stretch of the second half as the Broncos (20-8, 8-6 Mountain West) avenged a 77-57 loss to the Rams on Jan. 30.

Greg Smith scored 17 points and Dorian Green added 15 for Colorado State (22-7, 9-5), which has lost three of its last four games to drop into a second-place tie with Nevada-Las Vegas.

Marks’ output ties for fifth-most in Boise State history. He hit all 11 of his second-half shots to finish 13-of-18 from the field. His previous career best of 35 points came in a victory over Creighton on Nov. 28.

Colorado State’s only lead came on Smith’s basket just before halftime.
