Boise State wins 82-62, ends 3-game losing streak

BOISE, Idaho (AP) RJ Williams, Boise State's leading scorer and rebounder, had 14 points and six rebounds before leaving the game with an injury, and the Broncos snapped a three-game losing streak with an 82-62 win over Division II Central Washington on Saturday.

After Williams was helped off the court and to the locker room with an apparent ankle injury with 7:11 remaining, Justinian Jessup and Marcus Dickinson made consecutive 3-pointers for a 14-point lead which remained in double figures the rest of the way. Williams later returned to the bench on his own.

Jessup, with three second-half 3-pointers, and Alex Hobbs finished with 13 points each and Derrick Alston added 12 with six boards.

The Broncos (3-5), who led by four at halftime, made 19 of 30 free throws while the Wildcats were only 3 of 5.

Malcolm Cola scored 16 points and Jeryn Lucas, with three 3s, had 13 for Central Washington.
