Elorriaga hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Broncos a 37-20 advantage with just under 16 minutes to play. He again hit back-to-back shots from behind the arc to make it 46-25 with 13:20 remaining.
The Huskies trailed just 19-17 with two minutes left in the first half before Boise State scored the final eight points of the stanza as part of a 12-0 run.
