Boise State Scores Biggest Upset in School History

Derrick Marks scored a career-high 35 points, including 18 straight in the second half, as Boise State upset #11 Creighton in Omaha last night, 83-70.

Creighton represents the highest-ranked team the Bronco basketball team has ever defeated.  Boise State, now 5-1, played #13 MIchigan State down to the wire last week on the road before losing by four.  Creighton had a home winning streak of 42 games in the month of November.

Anthony Drmic had 17 points and Jeff Elorriaga added 12 points on 4-5 shooting from three point range.  Doug McDermott led Creighton with 21 points while Grant Gibbs had 17.

Boise State posted a 39-33 halftime lead after shooting lights out (64%).  The Bronco sharpshooting team made seven straght 3-pointers and were 9-13 from three-point land in the first 20 minutes.
