Still Excited about BSU Hoops

Many of you probably know at this point that Long Beach State of the Big West took down #9 Pitt this week.  They had received a few votes in the polls last week but it doesn't look like they'll be ranked when BSU rolls into town next week :(  A win on the road down there would be CRAZY IMPRESSIVE.  I don't expect it to happen but at this point we're a pretty unpredictable team and that'll be our first test.  Don't buy into all the Utah promos before the game referring to "Pac-12 Powerhouse Utah."  

Well before we get to excited about Long Beach we've got a game tomorrow in The Pavillion (happy NYbronco?) and I hope some students show up tomorrow, they did an awesome job the other night.  Super entertaining and a great win.  All the details on the austrailian butt kicking the Matadors of Cal Stat will be getting tomorrow:

SERIES HISTORY: The Broncos have won each of the five previous meetings with the Matadors, the latest an 84-75 Boise State victory on the road, Dec. 9, 2006. Boise State is 3-0 at home against Cal State Northridge.

VERSUS THE BIG WEST: Boise State is 44-29 all-time against teams currently in the Big West - a league in which the Broncos held membership from 1996-2001. The Broncos went 2-1 against the league last season, defeating UC Davis (67-47) and UC Santa Barbara (78-76 OT), and falling to Long Beach State (69-66). Boise State compiled a record of 44-36 during its five seasons in the conference.

 Boise State is looking for its second-straight 3-0 start under head coach Leon Rice, after tying the school record with a 6-0 start in 2010-11. The Broncos have not won their first three games in back-to-back seasons at any point in school history.

 Derrick Marks went a perfect 8-for-8 from the floor en route to 20 points in his Bronco debut against Colorado Christian (Nov. 11), the first 20-point game by a Boise State freshman since Anthony Thomas scored 21 against Hawaii, Jan. 20, 2007.

In the Broncos’ next game against Utah, fellow freshman Anthony Drmic scored 23 points, the most by a Boise State freshman since Steve Shepherd scored 26 against Montana State, Feb. 26, 1994.

Boise State has not had two different freshmen score 20-or-more points in a season since at least 1993-94, a span of at least 17 seasons.
