NAMPA, Idaho (AP) Anthony Drmic scored a career-high 26 points to lead Boise State to a 76-73 victory over Idaho on Saturday.
Drmic made six of Boise State's 10 3-point baskets as the Broncos (10-4) won for just the second time in five games.
Deremy Geiger scored 17 points and Stephen Madison added 16 for Idaho (7-7), which lost its third consecutive contest.
The Vandals rallied from a 12-point second-half deficit to pull within 74-73 on Landon Tatum's two free throws with 3.9 seconds remaining, but Boise State's Drew Wiley made two free throws with three seconds left and Idaho's Kyle Barone missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer.
Idaho led 43-41 when Drmic hit his sixth 3-pointer to start a 16-2 surge that gave the Broncos a 57-45 advantage with 13 minutes left.
The contest was played at the Idaho Center in Nampa, 22 miles from the Boise State campus.
