    La. Tech pulls away vs. Boise State in WAC quarters

    RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Paul Millsap scored 19 points and had 17 rebounds as Louisiana Tech beat Boise State 75-64 in the quarterfinals of the Western Athletic Conference tournament Thursday.

    Third-seeded Louisiana Tech (20-11) had a 54-52 lead with under seven minutes to play but went on an 18-5 run over a five-minute span to put away No. 6 seed Boise State (14-15).

    Millsap, who had just four points at halftime, scored 10 points in that stretch.

    Trey McDowell added 13 points for the Bulldogs, who will play the winner of Thursday's Utah State-San Jose State game Friday in the semifinals.

    Coby Karl led the Broncos with 16 points and Tez Banks scored 14 points.

    Boise State entered the game shooting 37.1 percent from 3-point range but the Broncos connected on just 2 of 15 against Louisiana Tech.

    Boise State had 19 turnovers to 11 for Louisiana Tech.

    Millsap's double-double was his 66th in his 85-game career at Louisiana Tech as the junior will likely lead the nation in rebounding for an unprecedented third straight season.

    He is averaging 13.6 boards per game this season.

    Louisiana Tech is without starter Michael Wilds, who was ruled academically ineligible this week.
