Jan. 5, 2001
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Kyle Bailey scored 17 points, including a three-pointer at the buzzer, to lift Santa Clara past Idaho State 79-76 on Friday night.
Bailey's heroics helped the Broncos (8-7) overcome a school record 15 three-pointers from the Bengals.
Tim Erickson scored a season-high 22 points to lead Idaho State (4-7), which lost its second straight game. D'Marr Suggs had 20 points.
Emslie sank two free throws with 54 seconds left as the Broncos took a six-point advantage, but Suggs hit a three-pointer 10 seconds later to cut the lead in half. After Bailey hit one of two free throws, Suggs hit another three-pointer, which set the school record, and Idaho State was within one.
Idaho State shot 59 percent from the field, including 73 percent from three-point range, in the first half, yet still needed a three-pointer from Erickson late in the half to take a 40-38 halftime lead.
