ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) Elijah Brown scored 13 points in a game-ending 19-2 run to give New Mexico a wild, 80-78 come-from-behind victory Wednesday over Boise State.
Brown finished with 26 points, scoring 17 over the final 11 minutes for the Lobos (16-10, 9-4 Mountain West).
It was enough to offset Anthony Drmic's season-high 30 points off the bench for the Broncos (17-10, 8-6). His 3-pointer just before the final buzzer drew iron and bounced away.
In one stretch toward the end of the first half, the two teams went on a precision long-range binge, with Boise State scoring from behind the arc on 6-of-7 possessions - five from Drmic - while the Lobos went 5 for 5.
Trailing 76-61 with six minutes remaining, New Mexico and Brown took off, with his 4-point play igniting the Lobos.
Tim Williams added 18 points and four blocks for the Lobos while James Webb III had 18 points and 13 boards for Boise State.
