BOISE, Idaho (AP) -Jonathan Gibson scored 26 points to lead New Mexico State to an 88-85 victory over Boise State on Saturday.
Gibson connected on four 3-point baskets, including one from the left baseline with one minute remaining, to put New Mexico State (9-7, 2-1 Western Athletic Conference) ahead to stay. The victory was the Aggies' sixth in seven games.
Boise State (9-7, 0-3) had a chance to force overtime but missed three 3-point shots in the final 17 seconds. Anthony Thomas' last-second attempt with two New Mexico State defenders draped on him didn't draw rim.
Jahmar Young added 19 points for New Mexico State, which made 13 3-point baskets and shot 55.2 percent overall.
Robert Arnold scored 26 points to lead Boise State. The Broncos scored 11 consecutive points to take an 85-81 edge with 1:53 to play and kept the lead until Gibson's decisive 3.
