Boise State outscored Wyoming 37-17 in the final 11:30 to run away with a 94-71 win Saturday, at Taco Bell Arena. The 94 points match the most Boise State has scored in a conference game since joining the Mountain West.

Both teams combined to shoot 34-for-56 from the field in the second half. The Broncos scored 57 points in the second period, shooting 19-for-33 (57.6 percent) from the floor plus 14-for-14 from the free throw line.

James Webb III recorded his ninth double-double of the season with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Webb was 6-for-12 from the floor in the game and scored 14 points in the second half. It is the 10th time Webb has scored 20 points in a game and his third 20-10 game.

Lonnie Jackson scored 16 points and shot 4-for-5 from three-point range. In two games against Wyoming this season, Jackson scored 37 points and was 11-for-17 from the field.

Five Broncos scored in double figures, led by James Webb III’s 21 points. Lonnie Jackson and Mikey Thompson each added 16. Anthony Drmic (12) and Nick Duncan (11) came off the bench to score in double digits.

Coach Rice commented after today's win against Wyoming,  "To be able to bounce back and play my estimation maybe one of their best games both offensively and defensively and effort.  This is the game where I was like boy do I want to win for these guys.  I have a lot of hope in what's in front of us the way we are playing and that's exciting."

Senior forward Anthony Drmic was impressed with the way the team responded after the Colorado State loss. "We just continue to improve and play as hard as we can and practice especially we came out with a chip on our shoulder and we were practicing really hard and it showed tonight."

Boise State goes back on the road to play New Mexico Wednesday, in Albuquerque, N.M. The game tips off at 8 p.m. MT on CBS Sports Network.
