Derrick Marks had 22 of his 27 points in the second half, finishing with nine rebounds and six assists as Boise State defeated San Diego State 69-65 in the Broncos' home finale Saturday. The win is another boost to Boise State's NCAA tournament resume San Diego State was ranked No. 31 in the latest RPI. "We definitely helped our cause another great win for us," Boise State coach Leon Rice said. Anthony Drmic added 23 points for Boise State (21-9, 9-7 Mountain West). It was the Broncos' fourth win this season over a team that is currently in the top 50 in the RPI ratings. "There's a lot riding on it," Rice said of Saturday's game. Marks blocked Xavier Thames' layup attempt after stealing it from Drmic with 21 seconds to go and the Broncos holding onto a 63-60 lead. "It was a great play by them, and Derrick made an even better play I'm glad he got it, because I would've been in the doghouse," Drmic said. Kenny Buckner, the lone Bronco senior, had 11 rebounds in his final home game. Boise State will again play San Diego State (21-9, 9-7) on Wednesday at 10 p.m. MST in the Mountain West tournament.
