BOISE, Idaho, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Dwayne Polee II hit a 3-pointer with four seconds to play Wednesday, ending a comeback that gave No. 5 San Diego State a 67-65 win over Boise State.

The Aztecs trailed by 13 with 15 minutes remaining, but rallied to take its first lead since the opening moments of the game when Xavier Thames made a free throw with 2:48 left.

Boise State, however, regained a three-point advantage on a Derrick Marks jump shot with 1:32 to play.

The Broncos did not score again, suffering a turnover along with three missed shots by Marks the rest of the way.

Thames brought San Diego State within one by making a pair of free throws with 52 seconds left to go and Polee then came through with his game-winning shot. Marks tried and failed to hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Thames went 10-of-11 from the foul line and scored 23 points to lead the Aztecs (20-1, 9-0 Mountain West Conference). The Aztecs lost to Arizona in the second game of the season and have won 19 in a row since.

Josh Davis was the only other San Diego State player in double figures with 10 points.

Mikey Thompson had 16 points for Boise State (15-8, 5-5 MWC) and both Marks and Thomas Bropleh had 15.
