Nov. 25, 2006
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Derrick Low scored 17 points and Daven Harmeling sank a pair of clutch 3-pointers late in the game to lead Washington State to a 65-63 win over Boise State on Saturday afternoon.
Kyle Weaver scored 12 points for Washington State (6-0), and Harmeling added 11.
Coby Karl led Boise State (1-3) with 19 points, but also had six of BSU's 21 turnovers. Reggie Larry scored 12 for BSU.
Boise State nursed small leads almost all the way until Harmeling buried a 3-pointer from the top of the arc to push WSU ahead 58-57 with 3:27 left to play.
A Karl 3-pointer and a Larry dunk provided the Broncos with their last two leads before Larry fouled Harmeling on a 3-pointer with a minute to go. Harmeling converted the free throw for a four-point play that gave the Cougars a 64-62 lead.
Boise State outrebounded Washington State 40-27, but the Broncos had 10 more turnovers. Boise State, a team that relies heavily on 3-point shooting, hit just 3 of 19 treys to drop its season shooting percentage on 3-pointers to 25 percent.
