ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Curtis Bobb had 17 points and Utah State scored the game's final 20 points to beat Boise State 67-48 Friday night in a Big West Conference tournament semifinal.
The second-seeded Aggies (26-5) returned to the championship game for the second straight year in front of a loud cheering section at Anaheim Convention Center.
Boise State (17-14) led 48-47 on an inside basket by Abe Jackson with 12 minutes remaining. But the Broncos went cold starting on an airball by Booker Nabors and they went on to shoot 8-of-32 in the half.
Bernard Rock made 1-of-2 free throws to start the Aggies' game-ending run. He scored 10 of his 12 points in the spurt. Bobb had 12 of his 17 points in the second half. He was especially dominant early in the half when the teams traded two-point leads.
Bobb also played smothering defense on Jackson, who had three fouls to start the second half. Jackson was held to 10 points - seven under his average.
Kejuan Woods led the Broncos with 16 points, but he couldn't connect over the final 12 minutes. Clint Hordemann added 10 rebounds as the Broncos controlled the boards 36-34.
Boise State, the sixth seed, opened a nine-point lead in the first half before the Aggies used a 22-5 run to take a 29-21 lead with 4:47 left.
Hordemann rallied the Broncos to a 10-5 in the final minutes of the half and
they trailed 34-31 at the break.
