Justinian Jessup Chasing BSU Legends
If you have followed Boise State basketball for any length of time you're more than familiar with the names Chris Childs and Roberto Bergersen. They are two of the all time greats about to be passed by a current Bronco when it comes to made three point shots.
Childs and Bergersen are tied for 10th on the all time Boise State list for career three pointers, each with 163. Present Bronco Justinian Jessup has 160 and is the fastest to 160 in program history which means the rest of the top 10 will certain come under attack in time.
Jessup was one of the Broncos who heated up in a 24-10 second half run over the weekend to help Boise State pull away to a twenty point win over Central Washington.
Jessup has been nursing a sore knee but head coach Leon Rice say's Justinian is one of those players who always just tries to play though the injury. Rice said when he asks Justinian about the knee the response is simply...it hurts.
Jessup can tie or surpass Childs and Bergersen tomorrow night when the Broncos host Alabama Sate in the first meeting ever between the two schools.
The Hornets have been on a strange journey this year. They've been idle for two weeks and tomorrows game with BSU begins an 11 day road swing for Alabama State. The Hornets are 2-4 and last played at Akron on November 28th.
Alabama State at Boise State Wednesday at 7 p.m.
