MOSCOW, Idaho -- Joel Wright scored 37 points Thursday night to lead Texas State to a 78-73 win over Idaho.
Wright, whose previous season high was 28 against SMU on Nov. 17, was 12 of 20 from the field and 12 of 15 from the free-throw line for the Bobcats (6-14, 2-6 WAC), who have won two in a row after losing nine straight.
The 6-foot-7 forward, in his first season at Texas State after transferring from Duquesne and Blinn Junior College, also had six rebounds, five assists and five steals.
Texas State trimmed the 17-point lead to 34-30 at halftime.
