Justinian Jessup had 22 points, Marcus Dickinson and Lexus Williams combined to score 21 of their 26 points in the second half and Boise State beat Loyola Marymount 68-48 on Saturday night.

Dickinson scored 11 of his 13 -- and Williams had 10 -- points in the second half. Jessup and Dickinson each hit three 3-pointers, while Chris Sengfelder and Zach Haney had 10 rebounds apiece for Boise State (4-1).

Steven Haney hit a 3 with 14:18 left to cap a 14-5 run and give LMU (3-2) a 40-34 lead, but the Lions made just one of their next 18 field-goal attempts and scored just four points in the next 13-plus minutes as Boise State pulled away. Dickinson made back-to-back 3-pointers and then a jumper to spark a 14-0 run and, after a layup by LMU's Zafir Williams, the Broncos scored 19 of the next 21 points to make it 67-44 with 76 seconds to play.

Steven Haney, the only LMU player to score in double figures, had 14 points. The Lions shot just 23 percent from the field, including 1 of 13 from 3-point range, in the second half.

Boise State outrebounded the Lions 48-24, including 12-3 on the offensive glass.
