LOS ANGELES (AP) - Chandler Hutchinson made 6 of 9 from the field and scored 17 points as hot-shooting Boise State held on for an 80-79 win over Loyola Marymount on Monday night.

Justinian Jessup scored 13 points and James Reid added 10 for Boise State.

Jessup’s layup gave the Broncos (5-4) a 78-66 lead with three minutes left but Boise State committed two turnovers and scored just two points from there.

Brandon Brown hit a 3 and then made a layup to spark a 13-2 run - capped by Kelvin Amayo’s free throw with 51 seconds left - that made it 80-79. After Hutchinson missed a jumper on the other end, Amayo’s baseline jumper was off target but Jessup came down with the rebound out of bounds with 1.7 seconds left. Steven Haney missed a contested 3-pointer as time expired.

Stefan Jovanovich and Shamar Johnson had 14 points apiece for LMU (2-3) while Haney and Brown scored 13 each. Brown added a season-high nine assists.
