    HONOLULU -- Kurt Cunningham scored 14 points to lead Boise State to a 70-58 win over Hawaii Saturday in the Western Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

    The Broncos (10-3, 1-0 WAC) got a double-double from Mark Sanchez, who scored 12 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Anthony Thomas added 11 points and eight assists for the defending WAC champions.

    Roderick Flemings scored 21 points to lead Hawaii (8-5, 0-1 WAC). Petras Balocka had 12 points and 12 rebounds.

    Boise State drained six of its seven 3-pointers in the first half to take a 35-29 lead into the intermission.

    Hawaii knotted the game at 51 apiece at the 9:23 mark on Adhar Mayen?s 3-pointer, but the Broncos went on a 6-0 run to extend their lead back to six. The Rainbow Warriors got within a basket after Bill Amis hit the second of two free throws to make it 58-56 with 4:21 to play, but they could get no closer.
