BOISE -- The Boise State men's basketball team used an outstanding first half to take care of Louisiana Tech to win their WAC opener 71-60.
The Broncos opened Wednesday night's game on a 20-to-2 run, holding La Tech without a field goal until the 8:17 mark of the first half.
BSU held LT to 20-percent shooting in the first half and lead 36-14 at the break.
Paul Noonan helped the Broncos put even more space between them and the Bulldogs by hitting six of his first seven 3-point shots. He finished with a team high 23 points.
The Bulldogs came out shooting in the second half and actually outscored the Broncos 46-35, but it wasn't enough to catch BSU as they won by 11.
Seniors Reggie Arnold and La'Shard Anderson both had 11 and other than Noonan were the only Broncos in double-figures.
The Broncos will go for their second conference win in a row Friday afternoon when they take on New Mexico State.
The Aggies beat Idaho 74-69 on Wednesday to open conference play with a victory in Moscow.
