Ashley Burke had a breakout game, leading the Bulldogs (6-2) with 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting. Burke joined Bailey as the only Bulldogs players in double figures.
Gonzaga shot 48 percent from the field, scoring 48 of its 61 points in the low post.
Bailey, a starter the first six games of the season, played 18 minutes and was 4 for 8 from the floor. Her game-winning shot came after Broncos forward Jamie Hawkins hit one of two free throws to knot the score at 59.
With Gonzaga holding Boise State (3-3) to 28 percent shooting, the Broncos were only able to stay in the contest on the strength of their offensive rebounding and free-throw shooting.
