Boise State Rips Houston Baptist

By  | 

Mark Sanchez recorded his sixth career double-double as Boise State defeated the Houston Baptist Huskies, 85-64, Sunday afternoon.

HBU's Gordon Watt led all scorers with 18 points, while teammate Emanuel Willis recorded a game-high 13 rebounds. As a team, the Huskies shot 45.6 percent from the floor.

Leading the way for the Broncos (15-6, 5-3 Western Athletic Conference) was junior Kurt Cunningham as he scored 16 points for the Broncos. Cunningham, who struggled to find the basket against Idaho, showed why it is he has led the WAC most of the year in shooting percentage as he went 7-of-8 from the field.

Since returning to Boise State's starting lineup this week, Sanchez has recorded a double-double in each of the two games he has started. The senior was the leading rebounder for the Broncos with 11, while adding 11 points. Overall, the Broncos had six individuals score in double figures.

As a team, Boise State shot an impressive 55.4 percent from the field and outrebounded the Huskies, 35-29.
