Nevada 77, Boise State 72

BOISE, Idaho -- Kendall Stephens tied his career-high with 21 points and Caleb Martin also had 21 to lead No. 24 Nevada past Boise State 77-72.

Nevada (22-5, 11-2 Mountain West) never led by more than six points in a physical game and held Boise State leading scorer Chandler Hutchinson to 13 points, well below his 20.3 average.

Boise State (20-6, 10-4) lost at home for the first time this season, ending a school-record 13-game home winning streak.

The victory gives Nevada its second Quadrant I victory of the season to go along with a win over Rhode Island. Boise State remains in search of its first and likely won't have another chance until the conference tournament.

Tied at 72 with 38 seconds remaining, Martin hit a pair of free throws to give Nevada the lead.

Hutchinson had two chances at the other end but missed an 8-foot jumper in the paint and 3-point shot from the corner.

Cody Martin was fouled after grabbing the defensive rebound and sank both free throws with 10 seconds left to secure the win for Nevada.

Nevada weathered Boise State's initial run to start the game, erasing 20-11 deficit to take a 33-27 lead late in the first half.
