Postgame reax: Boise State 83, San Jose State 52

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Final score: Boise State 83, San Jose State 52

Turning point

Let's start with that 25-0 run to open the game, shall we? San Jose State spotted the Broncos a quarter-of-a-hundred right off the bat and obviously could not make the deficit up. The halftime score was 46-14. The final margin was the largest in Mountain West tournament history. Just a little present from former Boise State assistant and first-year San Jose State head coach Dave Wojcik. He heard Leon Rice had a rough go these last few weeks and wanted to get him something nice.

Ramifications

Boise State moves on in the Mountain West tournament for the first time ever and moves on in any conference tournament, period, for only the second time since 2008.
