Postgame reax: Boise State 69, Air Force 58

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Turning point

Jeff Elorriaga's 13 first-half points (he had 10 total points in the last six games combined) put Boise State in the driver's seat by halftime, and the Broncos used a 12-3 run early in the second half to put the game away, on a really tall shelf, where not even a basketball player could reach it.

Ramifications

The Broncos have now won four of their last five for some much-needed momentum going into their next two games - at UNLV and home to No. 5 San Diego State. Last night's win gives Boise State five conference wins on the year - a feat that wasn't accomplished until February 20 last season.

Say Wat-kins? Boise State senior dominates in defeat of Air Force

Stat stuffers

Ryan Watkins continued his torrid pace with another double-double - 16 points, 13 rebounds - passing Tanoka Beard for fifth in school history in rebounds. Any Tanoka Beard fans out there?

Next game
