  •  

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Anthony Drmic scored 18 points and Jeff Elorriaga added 14 to help Boise State to a 71-57 victory over Northern Illinois on Saturday night.

Drmic had 15 second-half points and Elorriaga hit four of Boise State's eight second-half 3-pointers as the Broncos (4-1) rebounded from a sluggish start to send the Huskies (0-5) to their seventh straight defeat, dating back to last season.

Abdel Nader scored a team-high 16 points for Northern Illinois.

Elorriaga hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Broncos a 37-20 advantage with just under 16 minutes to play. He again hit back-to-back shots from behind the arc to make it 46-25 with 13:20 remaining.

The Huskies trailed just 19-17 with two minutes left in the first half before Boise State scored the final eight points of the stanza as part of a 12-0 run.
