MOSCOW, Idaho -- Kyle Barone came off the bench to score 19 points on 9-of-12 shooting to help Idaho beat Fresno State 69-66 on Thursday night.
The win earns Idaho a tie for third and a bye in the first round of the conference tournament next week.
After blowing a 13-point lead, Fresno State trailed 67-64 with 17 seconds remaining. The Bulldogs had time to set up a 3-point shot for the tie, but Jonathan Willis traveled and gave possession back to Idaho.
Tatum then fired a pass the length of the court to a wide-open Barone, who dunked it to seal the win for Idaho.
Johnson was fouled at the buzzer and finished off a three-point play to pull the Bulldogs within three points.
