UNLV stops Boise State streak



LAS VEGAS, Nev. - The Boise State men's basketball team's three-game conference winning streak came to an end Wednesday, as the team fell 75-58 to No. 21/20 UNLV at the Thomas & Mack Center.

The loss was the first for the Broncos (13-13, 3-8 MW) in their second run through the Mountain West.

Anthony Drmic and Thomas Bropleh led the team with nine points apiece. Bropleh also pulled down a team-high six rebounds.

Despite being down by double figures at halftime (41-29), the Broncos prevented the Runnin' Rebels (23-6, 7-4) from pulling away until midway through the second half. Boise State had outscored UNLV through the first six minutes of the period, but a 15-3 run by the Runnin' Rebels over five-plus minutes extended their advantage to 23 (66-43).

With the win UNLV stayed perfect on its home floor this season (15-0).

The Broncos started the game 4-for-6 from the 3-point line, but knocked down just three of their next 24, finishing with a season-high 30 attempts.

Boise State will remain on the road for its contest at Wyoming Saturday. Tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. against the Cowboys, and the game will be nationally-televised by The Mtn.
