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.

Phil Hawkins scored 16 points and Reid Koenen scored 10 for the Bobcats, who overcame a 17-point deficit in the first half.

Idaho lost despite the efforts of Kyle Barone, who had 27 points and 16 rebounds. Stephen Madison scored 14 points and Mike McChristian scored 13 for the Vandals (7-11, 3-5).

Texas State trimmed the 17-point lead to 34-30 at halftime.
