RUSTON, La. (AP) -- Reggie Larry scored 25 points as Boise State shot a blistering 57.7 percent in the first half of the game en route to a 73-61 Western Athletic Conference win over Louisiana Tech on Thursday.

Louisiana Tech (3-18, 0-9) came out of the gate hot, leading for much of the first half but Boise State (17-5, 8-2) would its stroke, ending the half on a 13-2 run to take a 35-32 lead into the locker room.

For the first five minutes of the second half, the teams traded baskets but the speed and depth of Boise State wore down the Bulldogs. The Broncos' lead grew to as many as 12 with 11:37 to play, but a 13-4 Tech run would cut that to 57-54 at the eight-minute mark. But Boise State made clutch shots down the stretch to get the 12-point win.

Tyler Tiedeman scored 15 points for the Broncos, while Matt Nelson added 12.

Orren Tims, a freshman making his debut for the Bulldogs, had 16 points and nine rebounds. James Loe and Kyle Gibson added 11 apiece.
