    BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Jermaine Blackburn scored 17 points and Coby Karl added 12 as Boise State outlasted Henderson State 54-52 Saturday in the Boise State Invitational tournament.

    NCAA Division II Henderson State (1-4) had a chance to tie the game in the final 10 seconds, but two put-back attempts from under the basket by senior forward Tyrel Hightower went over the basket.

    Boise State of Division I Western Athletic Conference (2-0) was able to inbounds the ball and run out the final seven seconds.

    Henderson St., of Arkadelphia, Ark., pulled to within 54-52 with a 3-pointer by senior guard Tarvoris Uzoigwe with 1:18 left in the game.

    Uzoigwe was Henderson States leading scorer with 12 points and Omar Guinea added 11.

    Henderson State opened a 20-12 lead with eight minutes left in the first half based on an 11-6 rebounding edge and 50 percent shooting from the field. But Boise State rode the scoring of Blackburn to narrow the Reddies halftime lead to 28-27.

    Boise State took the lead for good 32-31 on a field goal by Karl with 16:39 left in the game. The Reddies out-rebounded Boise State 39-29 but doubled the Broncos in turnovers with 16.
