Boise State Hosts Biggest Game of Season in Final Home Matchup
It's finally here and it is more important now, than anyone could have imagine: the final home game for Boise State men's basketball of the entire season. There are no exceptions, no second chances, no conference tournament games--it call ends at ExtraMile Arena, tonight: February 28th.
It's fair to say that the success Boise State has seen on the basketball court over the last two seasons has actually been a little more exciting than on the football field. While the football team continues to try and rebuild greatness, we're seeing the basketball team's hard work come to fruition--they're simply getting it done.
After dropping a tough loss on the road to San Jose State last week, the team has double the redemption to achieve: part for the team going into March and the elephant in the room: revenge on a ranked San Diego State team that totally smacked them when they last played, winning by 20 points.
Boise State, following their loss to a San Jose State team that is poorly ranked, is now back on "the bubble" for March. If this team wants to make it to the 'Big Dance' again this year, despite the fact that they have a great record, they're going to need to win some basketball games down the stretch--tonight against San Diego State and in the conference tournament.
Hoping to see the Broncos in action? Good luck-- the game is SOLD OUT and that's an awfully promising sign for the community's support of this team.
Tip-Off is at 7pm.
Let's take a look at the fearless leader of Boise State's basketball team, who we feel, frankly, is the university's most under-appreciated star: Leon Rice!
