Boise State University is well known for athletic excellence. The blue turf is synonymous with greatness, thanks in part to the now-departed Chris Petersen and living legend/cyborg quarterback Kellen Moore. The end of one era gives way to another, but there are non-football teams at Boise State as well.
Led by head coach Leon Rice and players Anthony Drmic, Derrick Marks and Jeff Elorriaga, the Boise State men's basketball team got off to its best start in team history with eight consecutive victories before dropping back-to-back nonconference games to 11th-ranked University of Kentucky and the always competitive Saint Mary's College.
Despite a couple of disappointing losses, the Broncos look primed to finish with their best season in years and are a clear contender for the Mountain West Conference title and a spot in the NCAA tournament. With nearly five players scoring in double figures, the Broncos take a true team approach en route to getting the W's.
Cheer them on as they face Fresno State University in their first conference game at home and witness the other Boise State team that has everybody talking.
