Today’s preview is going to be somewhat shorter than, well, the previous one we did. I’ll do my best to be a fill-in Hunter but you’ll have to excuse some of the brevity.

Exciting facts

1. WSU scared to play us at Extra Mile

At least, that’s how I am interpreting this from Leon Rice.

2. Boise State MBB got a commit yesterday

Leon Rice out here locking up those would-be winners!

3. Double-header fun: Someone is good at scheduling stuff

Not trying to shoe-horn a football reference but this is genuinely good scheduling on the part of the athletics department.

Basketball game at 5, then home to watch the football game? yes please.


Boise State – Lost 2

WSU – Won 1

Player to Watch

Mouhamed Gueye, F

Dude did a good against Texas State. He had 18 points from 32 minutes of action. 13 rebounds and bunch of other stats. He’s going to be a problem and, I would assume, the Broncos will be ready for him.

Keys to victory

  • Defense Wins Championships (Literally plagiarized from Hunter’s SDSU preview): Strong defensive focus and intensity marked a huge difference for the Broncos last year when compared to previous ones. Slow down the Cougars and it could be quick work for the Broncos.
  • Score more points than WSU Listen I get that it’s pretty self-explanatory but that’s going to be the overall crux for tonight. Score in every facet of the game: three ball, easy layups, jumpers, all of it (I’m looking at you, free throw shooting). Just… score more points please.

Score prediction

Won’t really put anything here as I am not good at it. BUT I will say: more than WSU. Just… just score more points, please.
