BOISE, Idaho (AP) Derrick Marks scored 30 points and Anthony Drmic added 23 as Boise State defeated Fresno State 74-67 Wednesday night.

Drmic's driving basket with 1:09 to play snapped a 66-66 tie and the Broncos (14-4, 2-2 Mountain West) made six free throws over the final 35 seconds to complete a school-record and conference-record 26 of 26 effort from the free-throw line.

Allen Huddleston scored 20 points and hit a career-best five 3-pointers for Fresno State (7-11, 1-4). Tyler Johnson added 16 points for the Bulldogs, who lost for the eighth time in 10 games despite going 10 of 17 from 3-point range.

Ryan Watkins had a career-high 18 rebounds to go with 10 points for Boise State, which played the second half without Jeff Elorriaga. The Broncos' guard missed the previous game with a concussion and coach Leon Rice said Elorriaga hit his head on the floor after taking a hard fall late in the final seconds of the first half.
