Boise State to Face The Unbeaten Mountain West Leaders
The Boise State men's basketball team has quietly posted double digit wins with a 10-6 record. The Broncos got there by posting four straight wins before Saturdays loss at Nevada 83-66.
Things don't get any easier this week as the Broncos get to play a pair of teams undefeated in Mountain West playwith a combined kleague record of 7-0.
Wednesday at Extra Mile Arena Boise State will host 3-0 UNLV and then Saturday the Broncos head to San Diego to play the 13th ranked Aztecs who are 15-0 overall and 4-0 in league.
Boise State is currently 2-2 in league tied with Utah State. Not only is Wednesday's game huge in the standings but it's also the night Justinian Jessop could well become the Bronco's all time leading three point shot maker. He currently sits at 275 career three pointers, tied with Anthony Drmic for first place.
Bottom line, the Bronco's will need Jessop to drain a few three's if they hope to best UNLV and gain the momentum they'll need Saturday in Southern California.
Five Mountain West games are set for the next two days:
Tuesday: Utah State @ Air Force and Fresno State @ New Mexico.
Wednesday: UNLV @ Boise State, San Diego State @ Wyoming and Nevada @ San Jose State.
Here now the current standings: San Diego State 15-0/4-0, Nevada 10-5/3-0, UNLV 8-8/3-0, New Mexico 13-3/2-1, Utah State 13-4/2-2 and Boise State 10-6/2-2.
