BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ Senior forward Roberto Bergersen scored 20 of his career-high 31 points in the second half and freshman center Trevor Tillman blocked a school-record seven shots Wednesday as Boise State routed Idaho State 86-51.

Boise State (5-1) held a 32-24 advantage at the half and led by as many as 39 in the second half as forward Mike Tolman contributed 15 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.

But Idaho State (2-4) trailed only 45-30 with 16:07 in the second half when starting center Odell Stokes and starting forward Tywan Meadows were ejected after a scuffle with Boise State’s Gerry Washington and Kejuan Woods. Both Broncos also were ejected.

The Bengals were led by guard Stephen Brown with 10 points. Idaho State shot 33 percent from the field to 47 percent for Boise State. But the Broncos hit 12 of 25 3-point attempts, led by Bergersen’s five of seven.
