BOISE, Idaho -- — Derrick Alston Jr. scored 23 points, draining five 3-pointers, as Boise State beat Weber State 70-59 on Sunday for its fourth straight win.
Alston hit 5-of-7 from beyond the arc, scoring 14 points after halftime when the Broncos turned back a Weber challenge.
The game was a hasty addition as Weber State saw its Saturday game get scratched by COVID-19 issues at Utah State, and BSU had home games against Santa Clara and Loyola Marymount fall away.
Carlson stole the ball and scored on the fast break, pulling Weber to 40-39 after halftime, but the Broncos scored the next 11 points, including an Alston 3 and Weber didn't threaten again.
The Wildcats and Broncos, formerly rivals in the Big Sky Conference, had not played each other since 2005.
