Six Broncos had at least three points in the first half, led by Derrick Marks' eight points. He also had four rebounds and three assists.

Pre-game notes: Boise State broke out the all-black uniforms for Tuesday's Mountain West matchup at Nevada. The Wolf Pack, off to a 4-0 start in league play, are the league's biggest surprise after winning only three conference games all of last season. Guard Deonte Burton leads the conference with 21.8 points per game and is the reigning player of the week. Nevada gave up 80.1 ppg in nonconference play, but is yielded 20 points fewer per contest in four Mountain West games.
