New Mexico (16-10, 9-5 Mountain West) gained control late in the first half on the strength of an 11-0 run during which the Broncos went scoreless for nearly seven minutes.

With 19.6 seconds left in the game, Boise State pulled within 76-73 on James Reid's 3-pointer, but Brown finished it off with two from the foul line, where he hit 13 of 14.

Chandler Hutchison finished with a career-high 31 points for the Broncos (16-8, 9-4), who never led in the game.

New Mexico's all-conference power forward Tim Williams missed his fourth straight game with a foot injury.
