After two years of challenging times, the Boise State Athletics Department has found a welcomed sign of hope in their men's basketball team. Leon Rice's scrappy squad won both the regular and post-season Mountain West titles. After leaving the WAC, the Broncos had never won a Mountain West basketball title since joining the league.




The Broncos even missed the announcement of their tournament selection. The team's flight was delayed, so the players watched the NCAA Tournament announcement by watching it on a laptop. Students, fans, and others greeted the unit once it arrived in Boise. The university hosted a 'watch party' to see the NCAA selection show.

Boise State will now play Memphis in Portland on Thursday. If the Broncos win, they could face the number one overall seed Gonzaga Bulldogs second-round. The Bronco's appearance as an eighth seed is the highest in the program's history. 2015 was the last time the team played in the tournament, which was in the first four-game.
